Lovely 10k yellow gold antique Victorian shell cameo pin brooch. Genuine shell is hand carved and measures 7/8" x 1-1/8". Features a lovely carving of (Greek) Demeter, or (Roman) Ceres: Goddess of the Harvest, identified by the chaff of wheat accents in the hair. Frame has beautiful twisted border and measures 1" x 1-1/4". Marked "10k" on the clasp. In excellent condition, no chips, cracks, or hairlines. All natural cameos when held to strong light will show very fine growth lines. These are neither hairlines nor cracks, they are natural to the shell and unique to each individual piece. Circa 1900.
