A timeless Cameo brooch with a lovely gold gilt setting. The petal pink color comes from a Pink Conch Shell caving with cream accents. The figure is a Roman Goddess style.
The brooch measures 1.25" X 1" and the cameo measures 1" X 3/4". The cameo is set in ornately engraved in an Art Nouveau style setting with a gold gilt over brass. The gilt is bright and clean. The only wear we see to the gilt finish is on the back where the prongs meet the setting. The cameo itself is free of any chips, cracks or flakes. It has a fold over catch which helps us date this lovely piece to the 1930s or slightly earlier.
A romantic piece for the lover of cameo jewelry. We have several cameos in our shop and more coming this week.
