Cameo. Victorian mount, around 1850. Cameo with a beveled rose gold mount made of shell (Cassius Cypraea; therefore the type known in the 19th century as “coral”), with a figure sitting in the clouds holding a jug and a bowl from which an eagle eats. The theme, inspired by the classical mythology of Antiquity, is the personification of youth, called Junventas or Juventus (her figure ended up being assimilated with that of the Greek goddess Hebe, who also personified youth and helped the gods by filling their cups. with nectar, harnessed Hera's horses, etc.), accompanied by the eagle of Jupiter (Greek Zeus). This is a very common theme in 19th century jewelry, especially in cameos, as it is considered the quintessential emblem of the diligent, caring and responsible daughter. Weight: 7.83 grams
