I purchased this some years ago from another shop on Ruby Lane, one which specialized in cameos. Loved it then and still love it! It is the most detailed lava cameo I have ever seen. It is in high relief, and in better condition than one normally finds in an antique. The color does not reproduce photographically well, but it is the prized natural putty color. The workmanship is outstanding, with every strand of her hair, the blossoms, the draped gown done so exquisitely.

Medium: Lava Cameo in 14k gold Bezel (tested by jeweler).

Size: Cameo 1 inch by 9/12 inch. Bezel adds slightly.

Circa: Mid to late 1800s.

Condition: Cameo has one small line upper left. Otherwise, Very Good. Bezel shows some wear. We have accentuated the line and age wear. Looks much better in person. Bezel may be later than cameo.

Marks: There are hallmarks on the thin pin across that can be seen in the photo. There is also a mark which is on the side which was not shown due to the flash on the side of the bezel.
