This large and beautiful hand carved cameo depict is a quite rare subject of Demeter, the Goddess of Agriculture, holding her son Ploutos, the God of agricultural wealth, in a harvest scene. The shell is of lovely cream color with a dark tan background and the carving is very finely done.
Set in a gold gilt frame to be worn as a pendant or a brooch, the pin back could use some minor adjustment but is working as is.
Measures approx. 2-1/4 inches by 2 inches by 3/8 inches deep, in very good condition.
