c. 1890 Shell Cameo of Diana Off to the Hunt

Victorian Shell Cameo Pin/Pendant of Diana Off to the Hunt

Rare, spectacular late 1800's cornelian shell cameo of the Greek Goddess Diana in her chariot being pulled by two nymphs. The detail is superb and hopefully captured in the multiple views of this outstanding cameo. It is set in a 14 karat frame. [I think the frame is newer than the actual cameo.] [There are three minor hair lines on the reverse. They do not penetrate the front of the cameo. They are somewhat visible in the back view.] The cameo itself is 1-3/4" wide x 1-5/8" high. This is unusual in that most cameos have a longer vertical dimension than horizontal one. framed width: 2-1/4", height: 1-11/16"
