This lovely cameo is expertly carved out of shell and has been bezel set in a continental silver (800 parts to a 1000).
It has both a pinback and a hanger so it can be alternatively be worn as a brooch or as a pendant on a chain.
It measures 1 3/4" x 1 1/4".
It is in excellent condition.
The profile is wonderfully carved and stands up well under close observation (many cameos are so poorly executed that the faces are actually ugly - this one is beautiful!). Her curly hair is entwined with flowers which helps identify her as 'Flora'.
