The cameo dates from the Edwardian period and is marked 14K on the bottom of the back. The bale moves up and down depending on whether you choose to wear her as a pin or a pendant. The condition is excellent with no chips. cracks or lines present. The bale and the clasp are in fine working order as well. The cameo measures about 2" in length by 1 and 1/2" in width.
