Carved Shell Cameo Brooch

$174.30 $249.00

ITEM # 111712 (B-396)

A nice carved carnelian shell cameo brooch.

Shell is a nice, measuring 40mm by 30mm. Brooch measures 1 3/4" by 1 1/3".

Here is what I know regarding this cameo. She has high quality carved delicate features with flowing curls, hair ribbon and flower, dangling earring and bird perched upon her shoulder. When held to the light is transparent (I can get a picture if needed, just forgot to take one). Her style is that of the Victorian or Edwardian era. I purposely did not try to date this piece as I feel it may be a "marriage" with the setting. The setting has the modern hinge and is a gold tone metal or plating as it is not marked. Personally, I feel this cameo would be worth taking to an experienced jeweler and have it mounted in a gold or sterling setting.

Condition: Very good vintage condition with typical wear due to age and handling.
