19th Century Finely Carved Cameo Victorian Shell Button Sterling Silver 1 1/4 For Sale
Up for offers is a extremely well carved cameo button from the 19th century , early Victorian period.
This button is craved in shell. She is a beauty with very define features , a head dress and many curls.
The depth and detail is quite remarkable. Her head dress I have shown from and angle so you can see how it protrudes. The work is amazing.
This is set in what I Believe is Sterling Silver. I did not want to change the patina of the button so I cleaned only the back metal portion. I have shown a before and after photo . I feel certain this is silver but I have not tested it and do not want to mar this in anyway. She is beautiful.
The button measures 1 1/4" wide. The setting is slightly out of the round. There is no damage to the cameo at all.
