Deeply Carved Victorian Ivory Rose PendantRose spoke of the language of love was the most popular subject of the Victorian
era and beyond. Over the years, we had come across many ivory roses in just about every conceivable dimension and skill
levels. With that knowledge, I admit this is by far the most gorgeous depiction of a rose. It is not just because
it is in deep relief (the difficulty levels rise with relief levels), but also because of its realistic expression of bloom.
The wide opening petals that fold over at the edge were further characterized by its delicate curves. It is like the
rose is "smiling" at you with bundle of happiness. I would suspect this piece was commissioned by someone
who was deeply in love. It took a master carver to bring about the complicated feeling of love and transcend it
into a stunning work of art. In pristine condition with no damage to the carving.
