Offered for sale: Victorian oval shell cameo depicting a woman standing outside of a house and along side a brick wall mounted in a brass picture frame like setting.
This cameo has both a pin with c-clasp and a pendant loop. This pin/pendant measures 2 1/8 inches by 1 3/4 inches. The cameo is bezel set in what looks like rose gold over brass. The 'frame' which surrounds the cameo is a green gold over brass color with floral decorations which are japanned to make them stand out. The cameo appears to depict a version of the 'Rebecca Standing at the well' motif which was used in Victorian cameos.
The back of the setting shows all brass metal. There is a straight pin and a c-clasp and a pendant loop which looks like it may have been added later. The shell cameo is in good shape with no cracks or problems.
