Antique 19th C. Ormolu Gilt Brass Hand Carved Cameo With Original Ribbons:
Good Antique Condition. The hinge pin has worked itself out, about 1/4 of the way. It should be carefully hammered back in. Ormolu metal has dings, pits, fine surface scratches, a little oxidation, and spots if discoloration. Cameo carving does not appear cracked or damaged, but could use a very gentle cleaning to remove dust in the fine lines. The hinge is placed on the right side, and the door closes by gently squeezing. The inside appears to be made for holding trinkets, mementos, etc.
The pendant is strung on two picot-edged ribbons, popular in the early to mid-1800's. The ribbons are dyed sage green and purple. They have several small snags, but are still relatively strong. Yes, I do combined shipping! If purchasing more than 1 item within a 7 day period, please request an invoice from me before you check out and pay.
