Antique Victorian Night and Day Cameo Brooch Pin Gold Frame

She is Eos, goddess of the day, she is Aurora, she is Dawn; bringer of light of hope and rejuvenation. She wears roses in her hair and is the Mother of the winds and of the planets. She lifts her head to face the new coming of day and rides on the wings of an eagle.

She is Nyx, she is the primordial goddess of the night, who emerged at the dawn of creation. She is the mother of Hypnos. She has her eyes closed in peaceful sleep and she wears poppies in her hair, as stars rise over her peaceful profile.

This exquisitely carved Night and Day cameo brooch is a marvelously made piece, with lovely deep relief. It features two engaging ladies with a graceful eagle below. The frame is made in 9 karat gold, which is marked ‘9ct’. The cameo is most likely Italian and dates to about 1870, the large oval brooch frame that holds it has a C clasp and dates to about 1900. This wonderful piece weighs 11.1 grams and measures 50 mm north to south and 40.5 mm across.
