Antique Glass Cameo Brooch in Brass Bezel - "Athena"

This is really a great but - recent find from an estate sale. This is a circa 1890's glass cameo, white on a rich chocolate-brown. It is set in a brass bezel, with twisted-rope trim and the old c-style clasp on back (worn as brooch only).

The depiction is Athena, Goddess of War. There is really nice molding and etching on this cmeo; very very detailed, especilly on the helmet and, lower r/h corner, her body mail. Note: only defect is a 5 MM long "scrape", r/h side. But, hey, the lady is approximately 115 years old!

Any questions, please e-mail me.
