Antique Hand Carved Shell Cameo, Victorian to Edwardian Era, Silver Mount
An exquisite old cameo, Edwardian to late Victorian Grand Tour souvenir in finest form, mounted in silver with a guard and a pin-back. The detail to the carving is Neo-Classical in nature and just exceptional. Look at our enlarged images. Have been to Italy many times and know that a cameo of this fine quality today would be double our price if purchased there. The tiny marcasite "jewels" add interest to the frame.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. No chips or cracks, no breaks. The mount is silver, has a tiny hallmark on the back, bottom at the 6 o'clock position. We could not get a clear enough image of it to read or identify it, however.
If this item includes any CITES Appendix I materials, all state and federal documentation and certificates required by law for commercial sale, import or export, have been obtained for it. Proper legal paperwork will be included with it at shipment.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: shell, Size: 2" x 1.5" oval
