This cameo is held in place by a long series of Prongs around it. It also has a filigree open pierced work frame. It has a Loop Hoop Hook hanging from the bottom of the brooch. Other than a slight imperfection or a little wear on her nose, the carving is perfectly executed and shows no other wear. It has a triangular bar attached to the back of the Brooch. It has a loop with a textured bead with a drop hanging from it with 3 tassels. This Brooch measures 3" in length counting the danglers at the bottom. It measures 1 & 3/8" at the widest point.
