An interesting version of a Rebecca shell cameo c1860-1880s.
Hand carved from shell, the scenic cameo has Rebecca carrying a basket using a piece of wood that rests on her shoulder.
The rest of the scene includes a tree and a house in the distance.
Very nice attention to detail in the carving in the folds of her dress and the basket .
It is bezel set in a gold filled frame with twisted wire framing the bezel.
The pin measures 1&7/8" by 1.5", the cameo is 1&5/8" by 1.25".
Very good condition, the gold filled frame has not been polished so as not to disturb the integrity of the piece.
The pin findings have been replaced with a safety catch for security, there is a fold down loop so the cameo can be worn as a pendant as well as a pin.
A charming antique cameo with an interesting Rebecca scene.
