Late Victorian Style Lady's Shell Cameo Brooch, Greek Goddess Flora
This beautiful Victorian style vintage shell cameo is bezel set in a 14K yellow gold frame. The large shell cameo measures 2 1/8" length by 1-3/4" wide and it weighs 32.11cts. This carving appears to represent Flora, the Greek goddess of spring and flowers. The brooch was fabricated and handset with a bright polished finish. It is in good condition, having a tiny shallow chip along the back edge and some shallow hairline cracks near the clasp. Included is an insurance appraisal of $795.00. ***Note: that is a piece of lint in front of her nose, not a scratch!
