Antique Victorian Saturn and Chariot Shell Cameo, Silver, Marcasite Brooch
A rather nice Antique, circa, Mid to Late 19th Century Brooch with silver oval frame, set with marcasites and bright cut border. The centre with a carved shell cameo of a mythical scene, depicting Saturn holding a scythe, riding in his chariot pulled by two serpents. A god in ancient Roman times and ruler of Capricorn. The reverse with silver hinged pin and roller catch also with movable pendant loop for a chain. Size: 40mm x 32mm approx.
The pin has various undecipherable stamp marks, I have tested in 2 places on acid indicating Silver. Good vintage condition, roller clasp works well, various scratches but nothing serious, please use the photos as part of the description.
