A lovely and classic antique hand carved shell cameo depicting the vastly popular (back then) subject of "The Education of Eros" where a Goddess would teach Cupid (or Eros) various skills. In our scene it's a music lesson, the Goddess is playing a lyre while Cupid listens quietly with his bow on his hand.

The carving is beautifully done with incredible level of details, it is set in an old fancy 800 silver frame (marked to the pin stem) that features intricate flora design at the rim. The pin catch could use an adjustment but is working as is.

The piece measures approx. 2 inches by 1-9/16 inches and weighs 9.8 grams. The cameo is in very good condition, the carving is crisp and it shows no sign of damage. A genuine jewel from the old world.
