Vintage little Italian carved shell cameo, in a filigree edged frame, embellished with twisted metal tinsel, popular late 40s through 50s. The metal of the frame portion was gold plated, now polished down to silvery colored metal on the top, still showing gold on the back, as seen. It measures a petite one inch x thirteen sixteenths inches. Other than the wear to the gilting, very good condition. It originally had a folding bail from which to hang it form a chain, but as with many cameos, this was clipped off; many people did not want it on there to occasionally pop up and show, and thus removed them.
