HERE'S AN ANTIQUE, MAGNIFICENT, REAL HIGHEST QUALITY SHELL CAMEO DEPICTS THE KING OF THE GODS, ZEUS, THE FRAME TOO IS BEAUTIFUL, IT HAS BEEN REPAIRED, UNFORTUNATELY WHEN I WAS TAKING THE PICTURES, THE FRAME WENT BROKEN, AND I HAD TO REPAIR IT, FOR THIS REASON I'M OFFERING THE CAMEO FOR LESS THAN ITS REAL VALUE. LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE CAMEO TO SEE THE FRAME BEFORE AND AFTER THE REPAIR.THE SHELL IS IN MINT CONDITIONS, NO CHIPS OR CRACKS OR STRESS LINES. THE CAMEO IS VERY HIGH RELIEFED, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES, WONDERFUL CAMEO, LOOK AT THE DETAILED CARVING, A REAL WORK OF ART.  A VERY DESIRABLE CAMEO FOR ANY COLLECTOR.
