Unique antique Victorian Shell Cameo & 14K Gold Pendant depicting a profile of a woman with an earring and elaborate hair weave. The Cameo is cut-out, leaving only the contours of her profile. Carved from the layers of Shell, the top layer is white; the reverse is light brown. The carving is magnificent, Romanesque style. The Cameo is prong mounted in a simple, non-obstructive mounting, that is of a later date. It is marked 14K on the reverse. The Cameo Pendant measures approximately 1" x 3/4". This is a wonderful antique Cameo Pendant, unusual and in fine condition (please note her nose is intact, as can be seen in the side view images). On the reverse are small hairlines and a few scratches that do not go through nor compromise the piece. This wonderful cut-out Shell Cameo and 14K Gold Pendant shows very well in the photographs. The were taken with and without a camera flash.
