This lovely brooch is a hand carved shell cameo. It depicts a man and his wife in a country scene.
This cameo dates from around 1820. The brooch is unmarked 9ct gold which has been highly gilded to look like high carat gold, but it tests for 9. It has a good strong pin. The cameo is good condition and has no visible cracks or chips but when held to the light you can see a small line in front of the man's face. It measures 4.5cm wide x 5.5cm high (1 3/4 inch x just over 2 inch) and weighs 10.6g.
