Here we have a wonderful depiction of the Goddess of Youth feeding Zeus nectar. Hebe is beautifully carved sitting in the clouds with the edge of her gown in one hand and a bowl of nectar in the other. Zeus in his guise as an eagle is feeding from the bowl with one wing out stretched around his daughter.
The cameo measures 1-3/4'' x 1-1/4''. It is framed in a substantial Sterling hand made setting with nice heft. It brings it to an over all measurement of 2-1/2'' x 1-3/4''. This estate cameo is just so wonderful with no flaws detected and light patina. Please visit my shop to view my collection of antique and vintage cameos.
