This is a very rare piece and it's quite a statement!
A wonderful hand carved antique shell cameo depicting a warm and cozy Victorian country kitchen with marvelous details!
There is the master, who has probably just returned from a hunting, and is currently taking a rest at the table; there is the lady, who was likely checking the dinner menu, and just stopped to chat with her husband; there is the maiden, who has a stack of hay above her head, and a servant who is attending to the fire under the stove; there is even the dog! Who has followed the master through the hunting and is now looking for a treat in this warm busy kitchen. Well, someone smells the food now? :)
The cameo is set in a 15K yellow gold frame (tested) with lovely hand engraved scroll decorations. Overall in good condition, some very faint lines in strong back light, not visible from the front, T-C pin back is in perfect working order.
Measures approx. 2 3/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
