Victorian Carved Mother of Pearl Cameo Sterling Silver Brooch of Hebe & Zeus
This brooch weighs 11.5 gr. It measures 1.875" x 1.325".
Condition is good.
It is difficult to carve mother of pearl shell with the amount of detail you see in this cameo. The carver was highly skilled and utilized the darker color of the outer shell layer for the figures in relief, and carved down to the whiter layer for the background in contrast. This scene was a popular design that can often be found carved from helmet shell, but I have never seen it made out of mother of pearl before.
