A beautiful antique scenic shell carved cameo with a lovely 9k gold ribbon edge. This cameo is generous in size with the setting measuring 1 3/4" X 1 1/2 and the cameo carving measuring 1 1/2" X 1 1/4.
The cameo has a T hinge at the back and an earlier safety catch which the pin extends beyond the setting. We date this to c1900-1910. The 9k ribbon setting is beautiful and there is a fine rope along the edge of setting as well. The scenic setting is of a maiden/women with a cottage or house in the background and trees. The shell is translucent when held up to the light (see last photo).
It is not hallmarked. We have tested it be 9k gold in purity. It is in wonderful estate condition. We have a great selection of vintage and antique cameos in our shop now - take a look!
