This is a superb cameo! It is signed on the back but I can't make out the signature. There is also a mark on the 10K gold frame in addition to the 10K designation. I am assuming it is the maker of the cameo frame. The carving on the piece is wonderful and rare in that the subject is facing left. There are no cracks or chips, the only striations are the natural ones that appear in the shell . I think the subject is Ceres? I attribute that to the flowers in her hair. There are also wheat sheaves. It measures 1 3/4" high and 1 3/5" wide. The cameo is dimensional and raises above the the frame. The pin stem extends a bit beyond the frame indicating a date of perhaps the latter part of the 19th century. The frame is very ornate with a carved pattern.
