This is an interesting pair of Vintage Shell Cameo Clip Earrings depicting the Greek Muse Polymnia Holding a Lyre. Polymnia is one of the nine muses in Greek mythology and is the protector of the divine hymns and mimic art. She invented geometry and grammar and is depicted looking up to the sky holding a lyre. The beautiful earrings have a gold plated/tone setting in a filigree frame with seed pearls. They measure 1" long and 3/4" wide. the earrings are unsigned and only a tiny bit or wear to the tip of the clip and where it meets the earring. This seems to be from opening and closing the clip rather that from wearing the earrings.The condition is excellent.
