A wonderful Victorian lava cameo depicting a classical Roman bust in high relief. The frame is silver and it has a rope and leaf border. The tube hinge is original but the original "C" clasp has been replaced with a modern safety clasp. The cameo is in excellent condition and it is guaranteed to be as described. It dates to the second half of the 19th century and measures just under 1 1/4" by just over 1 1/4".
