This is an exceptional Circa 1890 / 1900 Antique stamped 15K rose gold English cameo brooch. The carving is well executed depicting the profile of a lovely young woman. Her hair flows down in an abundance of beautiful curls. There is also a swirled wave design around her profile that lends itself to a very Art Nouveau Style. The cameo is set in a stamped 15K rose gold setting. The clasp is original and it also has a bale so it can be worn as a pendant. There is also attached to the bale a gold chain with a pin so it can be attached as a safety chain if desirable or it can be removed from the bale. The cameo measures 1 3/4" by 1 1/4" and the setting measures 2 " by 1 3/4 " wide. This beautiful cameo is in excellent original condition and a fine example of an elegant bygone era.
