The oval intaglio engraved with a two-horse chariot in profile to the left, the chariot with spoked wheel, the charioteer (perhaps Helios) with cloak flying, holding the reins of the spirited galloping horses in one hand and urging them on with a whip in the other, groundline indicated, the intaglio set in an antique high karat gold setting in the Etruscan style. A very pretty example.
