Victorian Hebe Feeding The Eagle Cameo On Red Coral AndSterling Bracelet

A fabulous antique Victorian bracelet in superb condition. Featuring six rows of deep orange-red branch coral beads, threaded onto white silk, with a large sterling silver clasp set with a hand-carved shell cameo. The cameo depicting Hebe feeding her father Zeus in the form of an eagle is beautifully carved in fine detail, and is a pale, delicate pink in colour. The large and impressive clasp is 1.75 inches wide, and the bracelet is 2 inches wide and 7.75 inches in length. In Greek mythology Hebe, the youngest daughter of Zeus and Hera, is the goddess of youth and cup-bearer to the gods. A fabulous and very impressive piece of Victorian craftsmanship, and it wears beautifully. Recently professionally cleaned, it is as good today as the day it was made.
