VICTORIAN 9CT GOLD FINELY CARVED CAMEO BROOCH. Finely detailed deep carving, illustrating a young lady feeding the birds with a sleeping gent behind her. Scroll and bead gold frame. The hidden meaning behind this scene.

One would be forgiven for thinking there was no hidden meaning. Just depicts a typical country setting with a lady feeding the birds. But, what about the sleeping man behind her? To understand this, put yourself in the mind of the Victorians. What we see here is the young lady giving her full attention to the love birds she is feeding.

Her back to the gentleman, he has grown tired of her seemingly. Indifference and has fallen asleep by the tree. In fact the young man is her would be suitor.

They are both reserved Victorians following the norms of their society. She giving hints by attending to the love birds, but too shy to express her feelings in any other way.

He, perplexed how to proceed and misreading the signals has given up. The Cameo comes to the rescue.... The suitor, by purchasing this gift maybe a 150 years ago, proves his love to the lady. He recognizes his previous tardiness and the gift of the cameo speaks volumes to his intended who understands the true meaning.
