A beautiful hand made shell cameo pin with an intricate mosaic frame c1950s.
The Italian shell cameo and mosaic are set in brass, they were handcrafted.
The ornate floral design has wonderful colorful flowers, the carved cameo is a simple profile of a woman.
Within the cameo are sections framed with twisted wire, the outer edge has a heavy twist.
Well made and in excellent condition, no missing tiles or damage, there is a bit of verdigris on some sections of wire, no distraction. It can be cleaned if desired, I prefer to leave it as it is part of the patina.
It has the old safety pin C style closure and is marked made in Italy.
Measures 2" by 1.25".
A gorgeous example of Italian glass mosaic with the addition of a shell cameo.
