Antique Coral Cameo of Zeus

Antique Coral Cameo of Zeus
Actually more of a three dimensional sculpture than a cameo, the mighty Zeus is masterfully hand carved (more than likely in Italy) in high relief, in rich reddish-orange Mediterranean coral in this exceptional Victorian brooch - circa 1875. The beautifully executed Italianate frame is rendered in 18K yellow gold. A rare and wonderful find. 2 by 1 3/4+ inches.
