A simple and beautifully rendered cameo portrays a male in profile mounted in a hand crafted elegant 15K red gold frame.
The shell itself is unusual in that the ground is semi translucent and appears as a soft dove grey - a gorgeous juxtaposition for the white carved portrait layer. It is impressive at 2.5" x 2" and retains its' original broaching assembly with extended stick pin.
CONDITION: Very fine antique condition showing only age appropriate wear. Light growth lines to the upper right do not penetrate or detract. No cracks or losses to note. A beautifully rendered collector's piece from the late 18th-early 19th century.
