This exquisite brooch was made by AMCO, which opened their doors in 1919 In Rhode Island. They were comparable to the stunning designs of Van Dell and Kremenz and during the day were considered to be of high quality.
This beautiful piece is fully marked 1/20, 10K "On STERLING", AMCO (see photo), which simply means it is a sterling piece with 10K. gold overlay. It measures approx. 1 and 1/4 inch in height and 1 inch across. The pin assembly is in great condition and functional.
The shell carving is without damage and the woman is fashionable for the day, dressed in an off-the-shoulder dress. This is a beautiful carved, shell cameo with exquisite detail and ready-to-wear.
