Large Antique Gold Pinchbeck Brooch - Early Victorian/Late Georgian 19th Century - Hand Carved Shell Cameo Mounted - Hera Goddess of Love - With Safety Chain - English Rolled Gold - Travelling Jewellery Mourning. Non magnetic (except for safety chain). 67mm x 53mm x 12mm approx. Safety pin on 6.5cm long chain for added security. There may be part of a stamp on the shell reverse, seen with loupe on the clasp side, though it's well-worn and illegible to me.
There also appears to be a stamp on the reverse one of the metal'petals', though it is similarly well worn. The artwork is in good overall order. There is a single imperfection by the figure's headband, though this is minor (last photo). Clasp and safety clasp on chain both in good order. Good weighty travelling brooch that is in very good overall antique condition.
