Beautiful Antique Victorian Gold Cameo Pendant Brooch Hebe And Zeus' Eagle. A late 19th century hand carved shell cameo depicting Hebe, goddess of youth, offering a cup to her father Zeus in the form of an eagle.
A popular subject for cameos since antiquity. In a good quality 9 carat gold mount, with both a bale on the top and pin at the back allowing it to be worn as either a pendant or a brooch.
One of the bobbles has a little dent, and tarnish is visible at points where the mount was soldered together when it was made. There is slight cracking visible in one area when a light is shone through, but this doesn't seem to reach the surface and is not visible without the light (please see pictures). Still a strong and wearable piece. Please see pictures for size and condition.All of our items are antique or vintage so will often have some degree of light wear, minor scratching or discolouration/tarnish, etc. Boxes are not included unless otherwise specified.
