Exquisitely carved carnelian shell cameo depicting the Greek goddess, Psyche, set in 10-karat gold. The artist has carved Psyche in beautiful detail. This cameo is rare to have her facial features carved in the deep blushing coral color of the carnelian shell. The rich gold setting is heavy and substantial, a wide, solid mount for the delicate cameo. The gold setting has a lovely repousse design all around it. The clasp is marked 10K with a maker's mark, S. The clasp is a C-clasp with early flip over safety catch. The cameo also has a bail that flips up to wear as a pendant. The piece measures 2" in length and 1 1/2" wide. It is in excellent, undamaged condition. The cameo is in a presentation box and dates, we believe, to the first quarter of the twentieth century.
