ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 10K Gold & Cornelian Shell Cameo Pin - 3 Panels of Putti/Angels/Cherubs
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A lovely Victorian pin that is composed of 3 gold wrapped cameo pieces - each panel depicting a cherub - angel - putti. Replacement safety catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
CAMEO: Each panel bears an angel in a sitting position - the two end angels on pedestals, the center angel on a dolphin. Definite Romanesque influence and more than likely the city from where the panels originated.
CONDITION: Very nice with just a bit of tarnishing to the back gold length holding the 3 panels in place. A light polishe will bring up a shine. Oh, and there is a bit of a wiggle in the pinstem but it does do its duty when called to perform its function.
METAL CONTENT: 10K Gold
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot which is usually the norm with older pieces of American manufactured jewelry. Metal has been lightly acid tested for content.
SIZE: The entire pin measures 2-3/16" long x 13/16". Each panel measures 11/16" x 13/16" approx.
WEIGHT: A respectable 7.8 grams.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
