This is a gorgeous antique Edwardian era shell cameo set in 10K gold portraying the goddess Ceres or Demeter. She is left facing which is less typical, but what really sets this one apart is the quality of the carving which is exceptional. The 10K setting is simple and features a swivel bail so the cameo can be worn as either a pin or pendant. The pin fastens with an older style safety catch.
It measures 1 3/8 inches by 1 inch. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or stress fractures in the shell.
