This is a beautiful and unusual cameo pendant! First it is a rare left facing cameo....some only collect cameos with this specific feature.This is so because more than likely it was made by a left handed artisan. Right handed cameos are carved usually by right handed people.
It is over 100 years old.
The cameo is embellished with all sorts of 14k gold swirls, dots and dangles, all I may add, intact, original and in great vintage condition except for the clasp which has been replaced at sometime.. It is especially beautiful when worn at the neckline.
The gold has been carefully acid tested and is solid 14k gold. The dimensions are 1 7/8 inches long without the tassels and approximately 2 1/2 inches with the tassels. The width at it's widest point is a bit over 1 1/4 inches. Weight is 14.9 grams.
There is a slight bend at the bale. It is easily fixed with a small plier. I thought to leave it as purchased.
Please note that the chain photographed with the cameo is not for sale and is not included with the purchase.
