A fabulous example of a Victorian hand carved hardstone agate cameo stick pin.
In a rectangular tablet shape, with a great depth, the cameo features a centurian/roman head, deeply carved in natural hardstone carnelian agate.
Mounted to a pinchbeck/gilt metal pin.
Measurements: 3.25" length; cameo is 0.75" by 0.5", with a depth of 0.5".
In good antique condition; the pinchbeck/gilt metal frame has ( an uncleaned) tarnish with age ; the pin has a good strong gold colour to it.
A superb carving; hardstone cameos are infinitely more valuable than their shell counterparts; this has been beautifully executed.
