    This cameo pin was gifted to me by my sister who received it when an elderly relative passed away. I am hoping someone can suggest its age and possible origin. I would never sell it and would like to learn more about it. Thank you.

      Gorgeous carved shell cameo, please do keep this it's a rare beauty. The scene looks familiar to me, a mythological goddess (possibly Athena) holding a team of horses, perhaps I've seen this on Wedgwood jasperware

      Seems to be a very popular motif. I love mine and yours too!

      Italian, helmet shell, Nike/Victoria:

      Although the hinge & clasp with long pin stem are of an older type, the way it is held into the frame suggests early 20th century.

      Cameosleuth -- thank you for the information. I always wear it with an eraser stuck between the pin stem and the clasp -- just in case!

      A clever solution to a real & present danger! I have some in my collection that came with the clutch for a stickpin on the pin stem. Glad to hear you wear your piece. High time cameos came back in fashion. :)
