A lovely Victorian shell cameo of Mary, Jesus, and John the Baptist in a fabulous blue enameled high carat gold mount. The blue enamel is completely intact.

There are a few very shallow internal stress lines, of no consequence. There is a miniscule pit that shows in hair area of John. The pics are greatly magnified.

In reality, this pit does not detract from the beauty of the piece. The carving is well executed and crisp. The brooch/pendant is 2 by 2 1/4.

Straight and secure pin and clasp. Loop up top for a chain. I dont see any hallmarks.
