1930's Gold Filled Marked Carved Shell Cameo High Relief Pendant Brooch
ADDITIONAL MARKDOWN SALE This is a lovely 1930's Gold Filled(Marked) Shell Cameo with High Relief, and it can be worn as a brooch or it has a loop or ring that folds up so you can wear it as a pendant on a necklace. We determined this probably to be from the 1930's based on the lady's hairdo. I love all the individual curls and attention to detail with her pearl necklace, earrings, and what appears to be a corsage of flowers on her shoulder. I have taken pictures from both sides next to the light so that you can see the excellent condition of the shell. So many cameos have the same look, but I think this really is a beautiful carving of the lady in the style of her era. I also love the rope like gold surrounding that frames the solid gold filled surface she is set into. This great example of Italian art form jewelry measures app. 1 3/8" x 1 1/8" as a brooch, and when the ring is raised to wear it as a pendant, it is 1 9/16" tall. You will not be disappointed to add this lovely Cameo to your collection of fine jewelry.
