Lovely 14K yellow shell cameo brooch of Terpsichore. She is the muse of music. Her hair is upswept, with a wide band of leaves on top, and her gown drapes gracefully around her shoulders. To the right is a lyre, the symbol of Terpsichore. The brooch has a fold down bail on the back, in addition to the pin, so that it may be worn as a a brooch or pendant. The pin mechanism works fine. A lovely cameo.
It is marked 14K on the bottom of the back of the frame. It measures 1.5 inches tall by 1.2 inches wide, and is in excellent condition. It dates to the mid 20th century.
