UNUSUAL OLD ANTIQUE 1800s CARVED OYSTER SHELL CAMEO GF GOLD FILL BROOCH PIN. Up for your consideration is this unusual antique carved shell cameo. The piece is an older cameo dating circa 1850. The cameo is carved from oyster shell, a thinner and more fragile medium used only by expert carvers and having a lower relief. The woman in profile is rather unusual, she is not the typical, beautiful woman normally seen on cameos with flowing curling hair she is rather stoic almost Quaker looking with a hat covering most of her hair and a robe/cloak on her broad shoulders.The pin has an old tube hinge and what looks like a replacement catch, originally would have had a C catch. There were no marks found.
CONDITION - The cameo is in very fine, antique, pre-owned condition! Some normal age/use wear, cameo is stunning, well kept - as with all my estate jewelry, I have not cleaned it. SIZE - Cameo with setting measures approximately 1 7/8" long, 1 5/8" wide, 1/4 high with setting.
A unique and timeless antique cameo to give as a gift, wear yourself or add to your collection! DON'T FORGET TO View My Other Items For Sale.
