A very lovely and very rare hand carved shell cameo depicting an Angel with Lily and Halo, we initially thought it's St. Therese of Navarre, then we were enlightened by a kind and knowledgable RubyLaner that she is indeed St. Maria Goretti, an Italian virgin-martyr canonized in 1950.
The cameo is set in a silver and marcasite frame to be worn as a brooch, marked "930" for old continental silver.
A very faint line only visible from the back, otherwise In very good condition, the pin back is in good working order, measures approx. 1-3/4 inches by 1-1/2 inches.
