This is an antique shell cameo carved in high relief depicting a beautiful woman, her hair all in loose ringlets in the foreground and what appears to be her town in the background. She looks longingly at this town with fond thoughts. Along the edge are flowers and foliage. The shell is set in a sterling frame with a rope decoration all around the edge. The setting is marked sterling on the back. It is a pendant and should also be a brooch, but alas...the pin has long since broken off the back. There is a loop for a chain which moves up or down. This is a special cameo due to the subject matter and size. It measures 2" long x 1 3/4" high. The relief is approximately 1/2" high in some places. It is outstanding!
