Pendant with thirteen cameos

early 17th c. cameos with mounts added in the 18th c.

RCIN 65256

Some of the cameos are possibly contemporary with the original pendant but the ‘assemblage’ is of a much later date. The large central cameo represents Joseph enthroned to the right. He faces his brothers, who are seeking mercy following the theft of the silver chalice. Juda kneels before his brother and the others bow their heads.
