This listing is for a lovely Shell Cameo brooch/pendant mounted in an ornate, pierced decorated 14 K gold mounting, c. 1910.
The carving features a classic Roman face female with elaborate hair style with roses with a low draped neckline. The details are carved in high relief in tones of peach and cream. The cameo is set in a 14 K yellow gold mounting with tight hinge and safely catch on pin and a ring at top for wearing as a pendant. We could not determine the marking so had it tested and it does test to be 14 Karat gold.
Dimensions: 1 1/2" high and 1 1/4" wide.
Condition: Cameo carving is in excellent condition and the mounting is in very good condition although there is one small flaw on the lower right (facing) edge with a slight bend in this area (see photos).
