How I wish all the cameos I came across were as finely carved as this one!
Lovely 19th century Victorian era carved shell cameo brooch, old style "c" clasp, fresh to the market from a New Orleans estate. Pretty mount is gold-filled. Measures 1.75 inches tall, 1.5 inches wide. No real negatives to report - very pretty. A depiction of the minor Roman goddess Flora - She has nice patrician features with lovely flowers in her hair.
A piece you'll be proud to wear.
