Older vintage devotional religious cameo in 800 silver filigree frame. I would date this carved shell blessed mother cameo at least back to 1920. It is a generous size at one and three quarters of an inch by one and three eighths of an inch. This estate jewelry treasure radiates with old world charm. It is hallmarked 800 for silver content indicating European origins.
It may have started out in life as a brooch but the pin stick has been removed and there is a spot at the top to add a jump ring or bail. The silver filigree has not been polished and is deep with a time enhanced patina. Truly a precious religious keepsake. age appropriate wear.
