This is a fine antique Victorian brooch of carved white lava cameo representing the Greek goddess Hebe. This almond shaped cameo is set in a plain gilded brass setting with a simple T hinged pin stem and C clasp. Hebe is the goddess of youth and cup bearer to the gods, so she is depicted here holding an ewer over her head and pouring from it into a cup.
This brooch measures 1.625" x .875".
Condition is good.
Setting is gold gilded brass based.
