Victorian Hand Carved Shell Scenic Archangel Cameo Brooch & Safety Chain c1860. A beautiful, hand carved shell cameo brooch, circa 1860. Very large in size, typical of this period of voluminous clothes, where larger jewellery was required, not to be lost amongst the crinoline!

There is also a 2.5 safety chain for extra security in wear. Measurements: 2.5" by 2". In good antique condition; wear to gilt metal frame commensurate with age, left uncleaned, could be polished up if desired.
