Is she waving hello or goodbye? This vintage cameo pin and/or pendant features a woman at the gate, under a tree. She's waving. Someone's coming or going. Or is it just the neighbor next door. We'll never know for sure but oh what fun to guess.
This gold-filled shell cameo is nicely carved with the scenic view. The frame comes up high to hold the shell and it has a warm golden glow all around.
This can be worn as a pin / brooch with a secure rollover clasp. It can also be worn as a pendant as there's a pivoting gold-filled bail attached to the frame. Another 14K gold bail was added, maybe for a thicker chain.
The cameo measures 1 1/4 inches across by 1 1/2 inches high (not including bail which can be turned down, out of sight). It weighs 8 grams. There's a bit of age-related discoloration to the metal on the inside. Overall, this friendly lady cameo is in excellent vintage condition.
