All items are photographed and stored in a smoke-free business. Mother of Pearl 2 Maidens Hand Carved Shell Cameo Sterling Silver 925 Brooch Pin. 1.47" Long, 1.79" Wide, 0.27 Tall. A mother of pearl (MOP) cameo set in sterling silver. The pendant features the profiles of two beautiful maidens in an oval shape.
Both are carved with intricate detail. They have their hair worn in charming updos with ribbons and flower details as well as tendrils. They are hand carved from dark mother of pearl with beautiful iridescence with notes of pink, green, and blue. This brooch is a contemporary piece of no more than 40 years as evidenced by the style of the setting and the ladys' noses they lift up pertly at the tip as opposed to the straight line of more classical (pre 1920's) carved cameos. The setting has a twisted rope edge with a slight swag design frame in sterling silver (925).
The pendant measures 1.47 inches in length, 1.79 inches in width, and 0.27 of an inch in height (3.73cm long, 4.54cm wide, 0.68cm tall). Stamped on an applied plaque with "USA" and "STERLING".
The carved shell cameo is in excellent condition with no breaks, chips, cracks, flakes, striations, or repairs. The swivel locking pin is working and secure.This is a piece from my personal collection. I hate to let it go, but my dog tore a tendon in his ankle and the surgery and rehab is pricey. Of course, my rescue and his health and happiness are priceless. Treat yourself or the one you love to this delightful cameo in mother of pearl! Thank you for looking at GEMS and TREASURES of GRACE.
