A spectacular Victorian Revival brass brooch featuring the bust of the Roman goddess Minerva. The bust is cast in relief, with great detail around the dress, hair and helmet of the goddess. The face and portion of the bust is skillfully enameled in peach and blue. Painted facial details (nostrils, lips, eyebrows, etc.) add to the expression. The goddess is depicted wearing a helmet with a winged griffin. Her hair is curled and cascades about her shoulders. There is some discoloration consistent with age, but overall tone is warm and golden. Enamel is in good condition.
