I purchased this lovely lady because of the beautiful carving and soft, feminine features. She seems to have a slight smile. Who wouldn't when you have such a beautiful hairdo with headband and flowers?
The colors in the cameo are just lovely - a soft carnelian color background with the ivory carving that is topped with the darker outer shell. Stunning!
I'm ready to send her off to a new home, so if you're looking for a present for yourself or for one you love, this would be a fine one.
Measuring 2" x 1 5/8" she is framed in a lovely gold filled twisted edge setting. The safety clasp works well as does the pendant bail, which folds down when not in use.
As you can see, the quality of the carving is excellent; her hair wave is incredible and the flowers that adorn her blouse are quite special, too. A beautiful piece for you to add to your cameo collection!
Marked 1/20 12K G.G. at the base of the frame.
