For today’s auction, we are featuring a European shell cameo pin / pendant made in a lovely delicate Victorian design.
This lovely cameo pin / pendant measures approximately 1 – 5/16” in height and is approximately 1 – 1/16” in width.
The bail on the top adds another .25” in height to this wonderful piece.
The very sharp pin on the underside measures approximately 1” in length. Its sharp point is secured by a rolling clasp enclosure.
The silver frame encircling the cameo portrait is enhanced by the addition of 12 black marcasites which are seen at the North / South / East / West positions. The silver frame is marked as .800 silver on the underside at approximately the 6 o’clock position. The .800 designation is the minimum national standard for silver in Germany.
This well made cameo pin / pendant is previously used and is in very nice condition. There appears to be some fine scratches on the silver frame which are the result of normal handling. We are also noting the presence of some light dirt on the frame which we feel could be removed with a light cleaning and polish.
This wonderful antique cameo set deserves a place in a fashion conscious home.
