Unusual Antique Georgian English 15k Gold Oyster Shell Cameo Comet Brooch Pin
A wonderful, tiny antique oyster shell cameo; beautifully hand carved to depict a classical goddess or period noblewoman, in a high quality, solid 15 carat gold (tests) brooch mount with millegrain surround, shaped like a comet. Comet brooches were popular during the time of Halley's Comet passing in 1835. It dates from around this time and is in excellent, fully wearable condition throughout, with no loss or damage. It weighs 1.8 grams and measures 29 x 13 mm. The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
