Jewelry, Brooch/Pendant, Cameo

This antique shell cameo portrays the Greek muse Terpsichore with a basket of roses, a fairly typical theme and pose.  Bezel set in 800 silver and ornamented with gold wire trim, this piece may be worn as a brooch or pendant (pendant bail folds down to hide when worn as a brooch).  Detail is exquisite, and the piece measures 1-1/4" long and 1" wide.
