This is probably my favorite of all the cameos I have listed. It looks like a profile of perhaps an American Indian woman with flowers, leaves in her hair. She is wearing a choker necklace and her profile is very strong. It is set on the diagonal and there are swirls in each corner. The metal surround is brass and in a rope design. This is a medium/large size cameo and the measurements are slightly under 1.75 inches square.
The color of this shell cameo is cream ivory with some brown in the details that highlights every carved line of the cameo. The back pin mechanism is a trombone or slide mechanism. Overall condition is very good. Please see my other cameo listings.
Thank you for looking!
