This is a moderately large 1 & 5/8 by 1 & 3/8 inches mid-19th c. pearl cameo depicting a simple woman in mid-19th c. dress. She's not that pretty, but she may be somebody's mother :) The metal has not been polished and the gold-plate shows a good deal of brassing. It may be worn as brooch or pendant.
