This is a mid-19th century carved shell cameo, bezel set in a rectangular mounting. It is fitted with a tube-hinged pin-back, and a "C" clasp. The simple setting has beading all around the exterior. The brooch is 3/8 inch thick, where it follows the curve of the shell. The condition is excellent. There are no cracks or chips, the pin-back and closure work very well. The setting is gold-filled and there is loss of the gold on prominent edges and curves. There are no maker's marks or signatures.
