This us a beautifully hand-carved shell cameo brooch of a woman with the classic straight "Roman" nose. She is surrounded by reddish-brown shell. The scarf draping from her hair is in very high relief. It is a very wearable size: about 1-3/4" long and 1-3/8" wide.

The brooch also has a swivel collapsible loop bail so you can wear it as a pendant or a pin. The pin has a safety clasp which dates this brooch early 20th C. The mounting is gilded brass. The cameo is in excellent condition, as you can see from the photos.

This piece may be rare, as I have not been able to find another cameo like it!
