Love at first sight for me on this rare and beautiful near mint condition whiting Davis Hand painted cameo Necklace. A royal portrait the woman is wearing a crown and the detailing is wonderful through out. It's a large domed oval shaped shell and very difficult for even me to discern if it's mother of pearl or abalone. beautiful bezel is the romantic Victorian style done in open cut cast silver tone metal. Lovely small oval triple link circle close chain also silver tone and has the Whiting Davis oval shaped marker attached. It also comes with the original Hangtag. No metal wear. The pendent itself is not marked. Noted one faint scratch on stone, otherwise the entire presentation is near mint condition. Measures on pendent from bale down 2 3/8'L and 1 5/8'W. Chain is 19'L.
