This old brooch has such a lovely shape. It has a pinchbeck base with floral raised decorations on the edge enhanced by two sparkly garnets and a small shell cameo. The shell cameo shops a fine cut woman profile.
The condition is very good, on the right side of the cameo center a very fine surface crack, not really visible (please consider, my pictures are high enlarged). Old C clasp well working; the needle is a little bit longer as the brooch, advice that this brooch was made around 1850.
Measurements: 1.8 x 1 inches.
