Our Victorian 9c English Cameo will come to you as found in it's original London England box. The carving is lovely on this antique carved shell cameo. I believe gracious lady to be Flora with flowers in her hair and a lovely draping gown. The cameo itself measures about 1-1/2'' x 1-1/8'' and with the frame 1-7/8'' x 1-1/2''. It is hallmarked 9ct on the lovely open work frame.
This circa 1900 cameo is a beautiful piece of heirloom estate jewelry. A chain could easily be slipped through the frame if you would rather wear it as a necklace. Victorian brooches wear beautifully pinned to a plunging neckline. This one would be especially beautiful adorning a wedding gown. Sure to become a treasured family heirloom. It is in good condition with natural inclusions on the back of the shell.
