A superb antique Victorian shell cameo brooch, depicting St George slaying the dragon.
Large in size, with a 9ct yellow gold frame, has a stamp to left side of frame (also, professionally tested & guaranteed by my jeweller).
The cameo is extremely well carved, with fine detail and good use of layers to create natural colour within the shell.
Tube hinge, pin and 'c' catch to fasten; as often the case the fittings are base metal.
Measurements: 2" by 1 5/8".
In good antique condition; there is a sliver of cameo loss at 10/11 o'clock where there is a narrow gap between outer shell and frame (clearly shown in images); does not detract and is not noticeable overall.
A wonderful example.
