Antique Victorian hand-carved angel skin conch shell cameo in 10k blackened yellow gold. The subject is very unusual - front- facing young beauty who looks serious when looked at straight up, but is almost smiling when observed from the right side. The carving is executed in a high relief, very skillful and artistic.
The cameo is mostly white with light pink. The brooch is attributed to early Victorian period, possibly older than that. This is an estate piece in excellent vintage condition, especially considering that the carving might be over a 100 years old. Weight: 19.6 grams - this is a heavy pin / pendant.
