The back has an old fashioned T hinged pin stem and a skillfully replaced later roll over safety clasp. The cameo is a well carved. The lady is facing towards her right shoulder, viewer's left
This brooch measures 1.75" x 1.5". It weighs 13.9 gr.
Condition is good, with the exception of a small flake near the edge of the cameo across from the chin of the lady. Note that the clasp is a later replacement.
The carving is exceptionally crisp on this lava cameo. There is very little sign of wear.
