Late Victorian Carved Shell Cameo and Canetille (Wire Work) Pendant Brooch. c1900.

This lovely old canetille framed pendant brooch appears to be silver gilt with a silver bezel frame, but as I can find no Hallmarks I am listing as simply wire work.

Very probably Italian in origin, the delicately carved right facing shell cameo is of a high standard with some very pretty shading. It depicts the Goddess Flora and is in an Italianate style.

The original C clasp and pin is a little bent (as is the raised edge of the bezel frame) but with an original attached wire work bale it can be used as either a brooch or pendant. There is no damage to the very fine shell Cameo.

Measuring 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" with the Cameo measuring 7/8" x 1 1/4" it has some loss to the silver color but is a very pretty piece and in good Antique condition.
