This beautifully carved cameo features a full female figure with fine drapery encircling the body. It is amazing to see the fineness and delicacy of the carving. Seeing this workmanship on such a small scale makes us admire the carver's skill. This is especially true when the piece is done on hardstone rather than shell.

The piece is onyx and the white figure shows the depth of a three dimensional appearance. The cameo measures 1 1/4 inch top to bottom and is 1 inch side to side. It weighs 7.5 grams. A simple 14K gold frame serves as the mounting. The gold is not marked, but it has been acid tested and is 14K. There is a safety clasp which appears to have been a later addition or re- enforced at one time.

Excellent condition.
