The shell cameo is well carved featuring a woman resting against stone well with a valley scene in the background. The low gold border of the cameo features a decorative scalloped edge accented with faux beadwork. The back of the cameo is completely encased in gold filled , and features a pin back that swings freely on a hinge and closes with a safety catch. The back also has a eyelet on the bottom, perhaps for hanging a charm or decorative piece to accent the cameo's beauty. The actual cameo measures 1.55" h x 1.25"w and the slanted border measures about 8mm wide.
The entire piece measures just under 2" high and 1.6" wide. The cameo is in nice condition with a small chip from the top, and some hairlines at the top as well.2" high and 1.6" wide. There are some small gaps on the gold filled metal in theback , but in no way take away from the beauty or integrity of the piece this old!
