Ref  TYO1   Winter

Horned Helmet shell carving in a high carat gold Etruscan revival mount with duck-egg blue and white enamel detail, circa 1850. The cameo is after a statue entitled  'Winter' by Emil Wolff, 1847. Wolff, a noted German sculptor, was active in Rome from 1822 until his death in 1879. The sculpture depicts a young boy draped in a Hercules' Nemean lionskin, with Hercules' attributes of a staff and the golden apples of the Hesperides, the fruit of immortality. Wolff's sculpture was no doubt influenced by an ancient statue of the child Hercules in the Capitoline Museum, Rome. The pendant is 2 and 3/4 inches long including bale, 2 and 1/8 inches long excluding bale and 1 and 3/4 inches wide. Exquisite execution of a most unsual subject.
