This is a beautifully carved signed antique Edwardian cameo brooch in great condition. The oval carnelian shell is prong set in an 800 silver border (stamped on the reverse) set with sparkling marcasites. The cameo carving is exceptionally fine, detailed and delicately proportioned, a rich cream colour which makes a lovely contrast to the shell which is graduated between a true coral and delicate almost white pink.
It measures 1.7 in or 4.3 cm x 1.3 in or 3.3 cm. The fastening is a secure roll over clasp in good working order.
The cameo depicts a turn of the 20th century society beauty wearing a formal gown with wide decolletage, pearl necklace, and a leaf garland tiara in her hair which gives her a classical goddess air. The shell seems to have a carver's signature on the reverse, but it is hard to make out - it seems to include the letters Aeea.
