A lovely vintage c1930's Silver Brooch set with a carved shell Cameo and with 8 marcasites set in the silver frame. Probably Italian, the Brooch is marked '800' for the standard of silver ( a lower standard than sterling silver) and the shell is etched on the back with what look like the initials 'CM'. The Brooch has a hanging ring at the top so that it can be worn on a chain as a pendant.
The Brooch measures 3/4 inch across and 1 inch top to bottom and fastens with a safety clasp.
The Brooch is in excellent condition with no damage (the line that can be seen from the back view of the cameo is the shape of the shell, it is not a crack or a stress line) and the silver has a lovely aged patina although it could be polished to a brighter shine if desired.
