She's a great big gal, hand-carved out of genuine natural white shell. She can be worn as a pin / brooch or as a pendant on a chain.

Circa early 1900s - 1920s, this cameo is set in a silver filigree frame with a gilt wash. It's not marked but has been acid-tested and appears to be 800 silver which was commonly used back then.

The cameo measures 2 inches across by 2 3/4 inches high. The back has the old ~C~ clasp which seems to hold securely. The cameo weighs 23.4 grams.

The carving is lovely with her face prettier than most. Her hairdo is a detailed mound of bobbed curls. The shell is perfect with no cracks or dings. The cameo is in overall excellent condition. Admirable from every point of view because she's big and beautiful.
