Carved Abalone Mother Of Pearl Coral & 800 silver Cameo

Fabulous old cameo in a marked 800 silver mounting. It features a background of a single piece of finely carved abalone shell, a first cousin of mother of pearl, carved with openwork flowers. In the center a lovely carved red coral cameo of a classic lady, accented with small coral accents in the center of the flowers. What a treasure! This is not thin abalone either, but thick and sturdy with fabulous luster. This magnificent piece measures 1 & 1/2" tall and 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.
