This is a very Rare Victorian Brooch that dates from the 1890's-1890's. This Brooch has an elaborate tubular gilt frame and it swivels nicely showing either side. On one side, it has a Brooch that has a hand carved Shell Cameo with "The Three Graces "( with (3) Maidens frolicking and placing a Garland of Flowers on (1) of the Maiden's head ). On the other side, reverse, it has early Photograph (Tintype) Image ( under glass) of a prominent looking Gentleman on the back. The photo & Cameo swivel on an axis so that either one can be displayed. The Locket Frame removes easily for photo placement and has old cotton wading in it behind the photo and Cameo. The Brooch / Locket measures 2 1/2" in length by 2" across and the metal appears to be Gold Filled and has a leaf with a design on it, attached to the bottom of the Brooch. The Cameo measures 1 1/2" by 1 1/4", the Photo Locket measures 1 3/8" by 1 1/8" and it is 3/8" in thickness. Other than the Pin on the back being gone and the Cameo having some wear on it. This Brooch is well over 120 + years old. A Jewelry repair person would be able to replace the pin. This is a Wonderful Classic large antique Victorian Swivel Brooch! ( Often these were found with the glass missing or broken, and you can only show one side even if it still swivels )
