This is a highly unusual carved shell cameo brooch in Pinchbeck brass setting, that depicts 2 women kneeling in prayer. The women are kneeling side by side, in profile, under classical arches and pillars. One woman has her arms up in prayer. The other holds her hands in her lap. The setting has an old fashioned T hinge and C clasp.

This brooch measures 2.375" x 2".

Condition is good.

I love the artistry of a well carved cameo. They are like miniature pieces of art. This image is especially unusual.
