Here we have, a very nice, carved cameo on a Conk shell. A true Cameo, that has been carve on the shell, and left there as a decorator piece. I got it from a retired Air Force lady, who brought it back from Italy over 30 years ago. This is a beautiful piece, with the ladies head bust inside the oval. It could be cut out, and put in a gold set, for a very nice pendant, or just left like it is. The carved cameo measures 1 7/8" long, and is 1 3/8" wide, and the shell measures 4 1/2" long, 3 1/4" wide, and is 3" high. Great condition, but the small end has a small piece of shell missing. It looks to have been cut off during the making of the Cameo, if you look closely at the ends. Nice, shiny shell, with the white and brown coloring. If you like Cameos, here is one that you can make into whatever you desire, or just leave it as it is. Great for a collection!
