A very pretty hand carved Cameo Brooch and Pendant. the Brooch has a Mythological scene of Hebe Feeding Zeus' Eagle. In Greek mythology, Hebe is the goddess of youth, her name comes from a Greek word meaning "youth" or "prime of life". This lovely Cameo is nicely carved from real sea shell and is in a pretty filigree mount, the mount is marked "800" and has remnants of a gold wash. There is a loop on the back so you can used it as a pendant or a brooch. Overall dimensions are 1 /2" x 1 1/4". The Cameo is in very good overall condition. Hebe would make a fine addition to an antique jewelry collection.
