This cameo pin is ca. 1900, with its C-catch but modern hinge and shortened pin bar. The material is a pretty, light yellowish-brown lava from Italy. The face is nicely carved and raised. The lava is bezel set; the metal is gold-filled. The setting is a simple traditional style with tiny beading around the bottom edge. This pin is in excellent original condition with the lava being perfectly smooth. It measures 5/8" X 7/8" high X 3/8" thick.
