Georgian Gold & Carnelian Seal of Cherubs Sharpening Arrows

Rare Find

Zoom In

A beautifully executed and detailed Georgian intaglio seal which contains a most unusual subject. There are two cherubs, one taking the arrows out of the quiver while the other sharpens them on the stone wheel. It was made circa 1800-1820 and is typical of the period where imagery played a large part in expressing love to the receiver of trinkets such as this. The wheel is emphasised by the hollowing out of the carnelian.
