Here is a lovely Vintage Shell Cameo Pin. About C. late 1930s.
The shell is set into a scalloped & filigreed silver metal frame with reticulated sides. The cameo is oval and measures 1 ½" x 1 ¼". With the frame it measures 1 7/8 " x 1 ½".
The figure is right facing and has been beautifully carved. She is sharp and clear with a pretty profile. Her wavy hair is upswept and there is a flower at her right shoulder. It is in great condition with NO breaks, cracks or chips.
The frame is silver tone metal with a finish that looks like silver plate or Rhodium. The finish is wearing away at the sides of the pin, but the frame is intact. There is an old style clasp which is also intact.
