This handsome Lava cameo is set in a gold-filled bezel mounting with a twist circling the oval. The piece measures 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. The condition of the cameo is excellent. There are no chips, cracks, or other problems. The setting shows some wear in the gold plating, particularly along the outer edges. It appears that there was once a cover over the back of the cameo, which no longer is there. There is a hinged pin-back and "C" clasp, which works fine. It is probably the head of a goddess, possibly Diana, approximately from the 1870s.
