SHARING SECRETS ( Vintage Shell Cameo Pin / Pendant ): This vintage silver shell Cameo depicts Cupid (Eros) and his mother, Venus (Aphrodite), seated in a leafy bower. (c. 1910-20) Very detailed carving and complex composition add up to a touching scene of domestic life amongst the gods. Plain silver bezel and lip with rolled gold twisted wire trim. There is a pendant ring so it can be worn as a pin or pendant. The safety clasp on the pin back may be a replacement. Condition: Very good. Two striations - not cracks - near the cupidís wings. They canít be seen when youíre wearing it. Tiny loss of rolled gold on wire trim. Size: 2 1/4" high, 1 5/8" wide.
