SK42303Antique Victorian Shell Cameo Brooch of Zeus, King of the Gods. This incredibly handsome pensive portrait of Zeus is impeccably carved from sardonyx shell in exquisite detail with clearly incised masculine features framed by his flowing curled hair and beard and crowned with a laurel wreath. The cameo is in a rose gold-filled bezel surrounded by a yellow woven gold-filled frame and retains its original c-hook and trombone clasp. [There are three stress fractures to the right of the profile. They do not penetrate the front of the shell. In addition to the photos visible by clicking on the top thumbnail which show the true color of the cameo and frame, the photos shown by clicking on the bottom thumbnail were taken with a light source directly on the reverse of the cameo to show just where the stress fractures are. The cameo is totally wearable as is.] Marked on reverse with the Roman numeral XII. I am unsure which century they may be referencing to since I think the cameo pre-dates 1912. width: 1-5/16", height: 1-5/8"$ 345.00Zeus cameo

83103Rare 14 Karat Rose Gold Antique Cameo Stick Pin of Ajax, Greek Warrior-King, Hero of the Trojan War. An early 19th century carved hardstone cameo depicting the warrior-king Ajax set in a 14 karat (tests) rose gold frame mounted as a stick pin. The cameo displays the bust of Ajax facing left. Ajax is portrayed wearing a masked helmet over his long curling hair. His profile is pure Classical Greek; his neck is strong and muscular, his eyes are lidded, and he sports a densely-curled beard. He wears a toga clasped at the shoulder. Ajax was considered the second greatest warrior after Achilles (his cousin), and was the one who carried the hero's dead body back to the camp while Odysseus held the Trojans back. Ajax was one of the top fighters in the legendary Greek army that besieged Troy to win back the abducted queen of Sparta, Helen. Described in Homer's "Iliad" as a towering hero protected by a huge shield, Ajax killed himself after a quarrel with other Greek leaders when he was denied the honor of the armor of the dead Achilles.
