Perfect for a Vintage Wedding!

A very lovely and exquisitely carved came, circa 1860 - 1880. The cameo is about 1" x 1 3/8", or 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" including the setting.

The cameo depicts the Roman goddess Flora. The figure is carved in high relief, and appears creamy white on a pale pink base. She wears a string of tiny pearls and a garland of flowers. The cameo has no cracks or hairlines. The shell shows some natural irregularity on the reverse, as expected.

The setting is gold plated or rolled gold filigree work,with a pair of tiny leaves at each side. There is a retractable bail at the top.

The shell cameo and setting are in excellent condition, but I believe this was originally both a brooch and pendant. There are tiny solder marks on the reverse of the setting and a remnant of an old style hinge. The pin removal appears to have been professionally done, as it is very neat and small.

No chain is present. I occasionally do have vintage chains at a reasonable cost - please ask if you are interested. A new silk brocade pouch is included with the cameo.
