A stunning antique Cassis Rufa shell hand carved portrait cameo featuring a Hellenistic Goddess, quite possibly Ariadne the immortal wife of the wine god Dionyssius. Unusual in that it is such a high profile carving and also in being front facing, and that the range of colours through the shell have been used to create an extra dimension of shadow relief upon the carving.
She has the classical Grecian profile and her tumbled tresses have been wonderfully captured. The whole measures 3cm by 2cm and stands 1.5cm high, fastening with a traditional 'C' clasp and safety chain, the setting all of 9ct gold.
