An antique shell cameo with excellent presence. This graceful carving shows Hebe, Greek goddess of youth, feeding ambrosia to her father, Zeus, in his incarnation as an eagle. Not in the traditional pose, the cameo portrays this beloved vignette from a unique perspective, underlying the importance of Hebe with the overwhelming presence of Zeus.

The cameo pin is set in a 9kt rose gold frame. It has its original safety chain and pin. There is a loop for changing the piece from a brooch to a pendant. The original c-clasp and extended pin shaft remain and are in excellent working order. 1 7/8" x 1 1/2". All is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs. Originally $475.00, now $375.00.
