Collectible and wearable. This carved coral cameo measures 1 inch by ¾ inch. The total measurement of the brooch is 1 ¼ inches by 1 1/8 inch. The color of the cameo is a lovely shade of light salmon. A rare left facing woman’s profile is carved in high relief of ¼ inch. The detail is very nice especially the flowing locks of hair. What appears to be a headpiece in a floral design is carved all around (360 degrees) as a stem just above the lower leaf. The cameo is bezel set in a smooth frame with a Victorian style twisted rope edging. The pin extends slightly and has an unusual clasp that was used for only a limited time, dating the pin to 1895. There are no markings but the frame tests 18k using machine testing done by a jeweler. Condition is very good with only some minor marks due to age and wear.
