Product Description

Vintage hand carved Helmut shell cameo set in a 9ct yellow gold brooch frame with a hinged pendant fitting.

The cameo depicts the goddess of the night wearing opium seed heads in her hair, together with the moon and stars and an owl also clutching poppy stems.

The goddess of the day is shown with flowers in her hair with the rays of the sun behind her, together with a spread eagle sitting on a branch.

This cameo depicts a classic 19th century, finely carved, mythological subject.

The hinged pendant fitting enables the cameo to be worn on a chain, or the pin and catch fitting allows the cameo to be worn in the more traditional way as a brooch.
