Fine vintage Italian carved shell cameo circa 1930s to early 50s depicting the head and shoulders of a beautiful lady in evening dress. Her immaculate swept-back hair is dressed in ringlets and curls and she wears a pendant earring and pearl necklace. The cameo is mounted as a brooch in continental silver accented with sparkling marcasites and is stamped 800 on the reverse. It fastens with a strong pin and roll-lock clasp. This lovely piece could also be attached to a safety chain or worn as a pendant thanks to the ring and loop at the top.

It is in excellent pre-owned condition with very minor signs of wear and some age patina to the silver (not as dark as some of the photos might suggest), which I have left alone but could be polished up according to taste. The cameo has only the faintest few natural lines seen when held to light which are perfectly normal.

A gorgeous vintage cameo brooch and a nice size, measuring approximately 45mm x 35mm or 1 3/4" x 1 3/8" overall.
