This is such an interesting shell cameo, circa 1800's, done in a scrumptious creamy pale peach color with a slight tea stain quality. It depicts a ladies profile. Her hairdo is what makes it so interesting and she has a hairdo that almost looks American Indian at the top but then cascades in ringlets and flowers down the side. She is prong set in an etched metal surround.
Measurements are 1-5/8" long by 1-3/8" wide so it isn't a large cameo. The pin mechanism is a some c-clasp. Overall condition is very good. Please see my other listings of cameos.
