Lovely hand carved shell cameo depicting an anonymous beauty in Gibson Girl style. She features the classic bouquet of flowers in her hair and on her shoulder, and has been carved with a particularly serene smile.
She has been set in a 10kt yellow gold filigree brooch frame that measure 1/5 inches in height and a bit over 1 inch in width.
Condition is very good. The clasp is a riveted hinge / lever catch mechanism that holds securely. There is a scratch on the back but this does not affect the stability of the piece. There is also one possible fleur de lis lost at the bottom of the frame. I cant see the break but there is a small gap where one might have been and is no longer.
Nice wearable piece of antique jewelry.
