This very pretty brooch features a pale pink, nicely hand-carved coral cameo of a Grecian lady. Her head is raised to show off her long neck and dropped bodice. The cameo itself is probably Italian in origin, but it could have been set anywhere. The mounting features a hand-made bezel with a fluted frame. Intertwined with the gold is a strand of tiny seed pearls, totally intact. This cameo is in excellent original condition. It is not marked but tests 10K. There is a ca. 1900-1925 reverse-lever safety catch and a hinged bail to enable the piece to be worn as either a pin or a pendant. It measures 1 1/8" wide X 1 1/2" high X 3/8" thick. This one is a beauty.
