Shell Brooch - "Flower Basket" - shell cameo - in Coin Silver - Late 1800'sShell Brooch - "Flower Basket" - shell cameo - in Coin Silver - Late 1800's

This very pale pink, but very detailed, good relief,genuine shell cameo measures 50 MM side and 40 MM long. I cannot find any Sterling hallmarks on it, so I am going to say it has been set in coin sterling, which has some patina on it - it is approximately 130 years old. NOTE: there is a small bail, added on (?) which is simply of a gold-tone metal. Piece has no flaws, chips, cracks. This cameo is of a pink rosaline shell, which has lightened with age. Still beautiful.

Original C-style clasp and hinge are on back, see photo.

Thank you!
