This beautiful coral color shell cameo brooch, circa 1890-1910, portrays a lady attired in Victorian gown seated in a garden motif shaded by a tall tree with various building structures in the background. The oval cameo is bezel mounted with a twisted ribbon border. The mounting is gold in color and may be a gold wash or lower carat rating as I can find no hallmark. The brooch measures 1 1/4" in length, 1" in width and is equipped with a safety clasp mechanism. There are no damages; the photos show several lines in the shell which are natural and not cracks and do not show when worn. Gorgeous color and detail.
