A wonderful early hand carved Victorian cameo with a fabulous rendition of 'Rebecca by the Well'.
Based on a biblical story, this theme was a favorite in Victorian period cameos.
The bezel set cameo has a wonderfully detailed Rebecca walking to the well with a goat following behind her.
The frame is very ornate with applied flowers and leaves with curled wire, the applied designs sit on the twisted ribbon frame.
Wonderful fine detail on the dimensional designs, the applied designs are 10k, the setting is gold filled.
Measures 1&5/8" by 1&3/8", the cameo alone is 1&1/8" by 7/8".
It closes with a locking safety clasp which replace the old C catch, the pin stem extends beyond the frame, a testament to its age.
The condition of the cameo is excellent, no cracks or damage.
Lovely within its ornate frame with aged patina, this is a great antique Victorian cameo pin c1840-60.
