Offered for sale is an exquisite cameo done in a lovely shade of salmon coral with a metal scalloped background. I believe it is circa late 1800's to early 1900's. She has a very nice full face with flowing hair and flowers in her locks. She isn't so much a profile but looking straight on. She looks like a fine Victorian lady.
The measurements are 1.5 inches long by 1.25 inches wide so it isn't extremely large. The back of the coral shows some white coloration indicating this is a natural coral stone. The pin mechanism is a slide or trombone style. The post is a little bent to show age. I have kept the patina on the metal as is but you could have it shined up if you wish. I prefer the older look.
Thank you for looking!
