This antique carved cameo is in beautiful condition and has an intricately engraved solid 9ct yellow gold frame. The back is signed 9 CT on the bottom, but there are no other makers marks. The cameo was not cracked and the figure has beautiful flowers in the hair. If you look at our close-up photos you can see that at one time the clasp was repaired, this cannot be seen from the front of the piece. There's a portion of the bail remaining at the top, but you may need an additional loop to attach your chain. The shell portion of the cameo measures approximately 1 inch long and the frame itself extends the piece to have a total length of 1.5 inches. The cameo weighs 6 g, and is a truly unusual piece.
