This is a very old Hand-Carved Cameo with a very high Profile. There is a gold-colored metal (I think gold-filled) It has a twisted rope frame and a safety pin closure. The profile rises almost an inch. This cameo needs some cleaning but I did not want to try it. The Roman Lady has leaves and twists and curls in her hair. It is a lovely carved lady and the metal work is very nice. A cameo expert said that she was carved before 1910. To you from Kansas an old Roman Lady!
