Mars, the Roman god of war, is the subject of this cameo. Carved in a shell, the profile of the god stands out in white against a peach-coloured background. He is surrounded by decorative, abstract ornaments, which, like the clear, octagonal basic form of the cameo, indicate its period of origin. An antique subject and a modern design are successfully combined here. Most clearly, however, the setting speaks the formal language of Art Deco. It is made of silver and set with small, sparkling marcasite roses. Elegant curves combine with stepped geometries to create an abstract frame that is typical of the period in every respect. The brooch is in very good condition. We were able to acquire it in Berlin as part of a larger collection of cameo jewellery.
