This offering is of a hand carved shell cameo oval stickpin set in 9K yellow gold. The stickpin measures 2 3/8" in length and the cameo 7/16th" by 3/8". The relief is 1/8" deep. The cameo is of a left-facing Roman soldier in his helmet. The cameo itself appears to have a bit missing in the background area just above his helmet, however the setting was made to cover this loss completely. I suspect that finding a cameo of this small size, perfect for a stickpin, made the jeweler go ahead and compensate for the loss by custom forming the bezel setting. The shaft of the stickpin is marked K 9 for gold content and PM in a square reserve which would be the maker's mark. This piece dates from the late 19th century and other than the aforementioned imperfection it is in very good used condition. For its tiny size, the cameo's carving is very good.
