18ct Bacchus Portrait Pendant French C 1850
An exceptional French rendering of a Bacchus portrait with so much detail packed within. For starters, this treasure features double tonality of gold, a vibrant base coat, as well as beautiful hand-rendered green grape leaves that form a crown around his head. His classical dress also has amazing hand detailing.
What makes this so special is the rendition in perspective. If you turn the pendant sideways, it is easy to tell he is meant to be set straight on and three-dimensionally.
