For your consideration a really beautifully carved Victorian Ceres Goddess of the Harvest cameo. This piece is a recent estate acquisition and is just the most beautiful cameo. The size is 1 1/2 in by 1 1/4 in on the oval. The carving on this piece is quite fine with great detail in the hair curls and face. The cameo is carved in shell, though it is not the typical peach color and is more on the white/very light pink side. The frame appears to be a low karat gold but I am going to be selling it as gold filled as the frame is difficult to test. There is a pin and chain that helps hold the cameo in place which is very typical of Victorian pieces of jewelry. The closure is and old "C" clasp and the pin does extend slightly beyond the frame which is also typical of the Victorian Era pin. Don't miss adding this beautiful piece of jewelry history to your jewelry box. She is a treasure to behold.
