1930s 4 Color Shell Cameo of Ajax1930s 4 Color Shell Cameo of Ajax1930s 4 Color Shell Cameo of Ajax

Offered for sale: 1930's 4 color shell cameo of either Zeus or Ajax set in silver over brass filigree setting.

I have had this cameo for many years. Originally I thought the cameo was of Zeus but I have done some internet searching and now believe the cameo might be of Ajax a warrior who fought in the Trojan war but the helmet stumps me as it does not match the helmet worn either by Zeus or Ajax. The helmet has wings on it. If you know who this is please let me know. The cameo measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches. It was made in Italy in the 1920s-1930's for the tourist trade. The filigree setting is silver over brass The carving was done in four colors of shell to add detail and dimension. Be sure and use the zoom feature (position cursor, right click to get a close up view. When I get time I will post some pictures with a little more definition in color.
