Set in a gilt and hand engraved yellow color metal frame (one spot of discoloration and some minor loss, not noticeable when worn) to be worn as a brooch.
The cameo is in good condition, the snow white foreground is rich and impressive, well carved and very crisp after all these year (surely over 100 years), there are two very faint and short lines in the darer background, to the middle right, hardly visible even in backlit. Pin back is in good working order.
