Double-Profile Cameos

Cameo I

I have been to many antique shows and seen cases filled with vintage cameos, however, I have never seen one that has two profiles. Is a cameo with double profiles of a Roman man and woman rare? Would this piece be more valuable than the traditional Victorian woman?

I inherited this rather large brooch (1.75" X 1.5") from my aunt and believe it is from the mid 1800s. I am considering selling it, but unsure how and where to go about getting the best price for it. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated, as I am skeptical to just put it up on Ebay.
