LARGE VINTAGE ROUND SHELL CAMEO BROOCH PENDANT. It appears to be hand carved from carnelian shell, most likely by a master carver in Italy. The cameo depicts a beautiful young woman surrounded by flower blooms. I don't see a carver signature.The cameo is set in a marked 14K gold frame. The frame has a pin with a safety clasp, as well as a bale loop at the top. It can be worn as either a brooch or pendant.
This cameo is round in shape and unusually large. The shell portion measures about 2 in diameter.Counting the frame, the entire piece measures 2 1/8 in diameter. She believes it dates from the 1930's, but we're not certain. It's a wonderful piece that anyone would be proud to own.
Condition of this shell cameo brooch is EXCELLENT with no damage to report. It was obviously well cared for.
The clasp works properly and the metal frame is in great shape. Overall, this vintage cameo looks fantastic and displays beautifully. Please take a close look at the many photos I've provided and judge condition for yourself.
