Not just another pretty face...this scenic hand-carved shell cameo pin is different. It features a lone woman walking across a little bridge. A house and trees surround her. It all looks very peaceful on this Victorian mini artwork.
The cameo frame is a twisting ribbon of gilded metal...the inside back is brass with an age-appropriate patina. Some of the gilt is worn and/or tarnished. A jeweler could probably polish this up somewhat. The secure rollover clasp on the back replaced a less-secure original ~C~ clasp this probably once had.
This cameo pin is good-sized at 1 3/4 inches across by 2 inches high. It weighs 12 grams. It's in very good antique condition. Circa 1890s.
