DIVINE MUSICAL HARMONY: ( Victorian Shell Cameo Brooch / Pin ): A charming and cozy domestic scene is the subject of this beautiful shell cameo brooch, with Aphrodite seated in the background playing a lyre and two winged cherubs accompanying her with flutes. An attentive dog provides an audience. Probably carved in the 1890's, the 14K gold frame features rows of beading alternating with ribbon twists on the wide lip and a twentieth century replacement safety clasp and pin hinge on the back. Rendered with remarkable detail and warmth, it is unusual to find a cameo with three full length figures and an animal together.

Condition: Excellent, light wear with no visible cracks or striations.
Size: 2" wide, 1 5/8" high.
