A stunning shell cameo. This must have been carved by a master artist, the intricate details are amazing. It features a girl with flowing curls.
The shell does have a fracture/chip as you can see behind the girl's head, however the cameo is firmly in place and does not move at all in the setting. Including the setting the whole piece measures about 1.75" by 1.5" across. Setting appears to be gold fill over brass and closes with a simple C clasp with a tube hinge. No marks.
