Victorian shell cameo brooch pin in gold filled frame is made of hand carved Sardonic shell. The carving depicts a scene with a standing figure of a woman in a long dress next to a brick building with a door entrance, a bridge, houses, and a tree in the background. The cameo is oval in shape and the scene is pure white mounted in a gold-filled frame with a wide border and highly detailed rope design. The mount is wide and high and the carving is exquisite with much detail. The pin back has a barrel hinge and C style clasp. It measures 1 3/8 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches high. The frame has age appropriate wear mostly on the back side and a slight bend on the right side is noticeable on close inspection. The dark shadow is a reflection of the camera. This lovely cameo would make a wonderful addition to a collection and beautiful to wear.
