This beautifully carved shell cameo is bezel-set in a gold-filled setting with a twist decoration all around the oval. The piece measures 1 3/4 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide, 3/8 inch thick. It is fitted with a tube hinge and pin-back. The clasp is a replacement that dates from circa 1900-1910. The condition of this item is excellent. There are no cracks, breaks, or losses in the cameo. The metal work is also in excellent condition, with no dents, warps, or breaks. There is very little loss of the gold. There are no signatures or marks. We estimate that this pretty piece dates from the 1860s-70s.
