Beautiful, antique finely carved Angel Skin Coral Cameo Clip / Brooch, with an ornate Chinese made Sliver-gilted frame. Dates to the late 19th Century and is in very good condition. The carving depicts a deeply carved profile of a young woman with smooth skin and an elaborate hair style with a head band or hat and drapery on her shoulder. A sheath of Wheat also carved into the piece. Possibly implying a harvest. The color of the Coral is a very pale pink, almost off-white. There are small areas of deep orange in the folds of the hair. The frame is marked in two places with the maker's mark (an engraved Horse) China, Silver. Designed as a Clip, this would be worn as a Brooch or perhaps on the tops of shoes. Measures 1 1/4" x 1 1/2". Shows well in the photos and best in person! Photographs taken with and without a camera flash. Is a very beautiful, unusual antique Cameo Clip!
