Exquisite late Victorian shell cameo depicting the goddess Diana and set in a very fine 10K yellow gold setting in the Etruscan taste by Kohn & Co. The cameo is beautifully carved with lots of detail. Diana, the goddess of the hunt, holds three of her attributes--a bow, a quiver of arrows and a tiara set with a crescent moon. The frame is one of the best we've seen. The delicacy of the beadwork and twisted wire is extraordinary. The early safety catch is hallmarked by Kohn & Co. a Newark, New Jersey dealer. The back retains the original pendant hook.

Origin: America, ca. 1900. Condition: excellent, no cracks. Size: 2-5/32" x 1-3/4". Weight: 14.25 grams.
