While shopping, this glass tassie leaped out at me amongst hundreds of other antique pieces. The naturalistic, expressive face of Psyche reminds me of the artistic portraiture of Julia Margaret Cameron. Something is special here that I can't put into words, and I'm pretty damn good at spinning a sentence. Can you feel the magic? It's giving pre-Raphaelite vibes even though it was made several decades before Rosetti's women were immortalized on canvas.
