The finely carved shell cameo displays a less common depiction of Hebe, the Greek goddess of youth and divine cupbearer to the gods and the Aetos Dios, a giant golden eagle which served as Zeus' personal messenger and animal companion; Zeus, being Hebe's father.
In this carving, the eagle is holding a cornucopia (horn of plenty), representing the horn of Amalthea, the goat who nourished Zeus when he was a baby.
The oval shaped carved shell cameo is collet set in an polished 15ct yellow gold frame ornamented with an applied rope twist border and four applied scrolling motifs interconnected via plain curved bands.
The brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp.
This antique brooch is hallmarked to the outer rim with the 15 ct gold fineness mark (15ct) and maker's mark 'JS'.
