Description


This impressive carved shell antique brooch has been crafted in 14 ct yellow gold.


The finely carved shell cameo displays a scene of classical Greek mythology, depicting a putto with a lyre above a seated musician playing the aulos, all for the Charities.*


The scene is further embellished with a Greek urn between the dancers and musician, with a tholos style temple in the background amidst a grass and tree lined terrain.


The rectangular carved shell cameo is claw set in a 14ct yellow gold frame ornamented with an undulating, crimpled border.


The Victorian brooch secures to the reverse with a 14ct yellow gold hinged pin and clasp.


This antique brooch is hallmarked to the reverse of the frame with the 14 ct gold fineness mark (585) and mark 'NA95'.


* The Charities (or Kharities), also known as the Graces, were three Greek goddesses who symbolised grace, beauty, adornment, joy, mirth, festivity, dance and song. They are typically depicted dancing with their arms linked together.
