Lovely older carved shell cameo brooch or pendant. The cameo features a lovely classic lady in nice detail, prong mounted in her original mounting of a gold tone metal set with nice old marcasites on the front. On the back is the pin brooch fastener as well as a loop for hanging on a necklace as a pendant. This piece measures 1 & 1/2" long including the bale and is 1" wide. It is in very good condition with some wear on the metal. The last photo shows the cameo held up to lighting to show detail.
