Lovely old slide style necklace featuring a carved cameo of a lovely lady. The cameo is we think hardstone, in a carnelian color ; although it may be Sardonyx shell ; a little hard to tell in such a narrow cameo with so little background. The cameo is mounted on a slide; and on a slide necklace chain with tassels on the ends. The clasp on the chain is marked for fine gold filled, and measures 18" long when laid flat. The slide can be moved up and down for personal choice, and the slide itself measures 3/4" tall. It is in very good condition. This came to us from the estate of a cameo collector, from a huge collection of over a thousand cameos; we were privileged to pick out and purchase a few of our favorites.
