For sale is this very pretty, circa 1890's cameo brooch done in fine, tested sterling silver with a gold wash. The frame of the cameo has a pretty filigree edge of Italian origin. The piece measures 1 3/4" x almost 1 1/2" and the hand carved shell carving depicts a beautiful woman with an extraordinary hairdo. It has a hallmark that I've photographed, but cannot decipher. The shell cameos of this era were "fitted" into the frames and it appears that tin y bit of the edging is worn off, but it in no way affects the security of the cameo in the setting. Cameo has no cracks, neither internal, nor external. It has original "T" pin and "C" clasp dating it to this era.
