Antique Vintage Shell Cameo 1850's Pin Brooch 10kt Yellow Gold Women's:
Pretty as a Picture!
Lovely Antique Carved Shell CameoThere is something so classic about a cameo. Whether worn at the collar of a crisp blouse, or gracing the lapel of a camelhair jacket, you know immediately that the wearer has Class with a capital "c" -- and then some. Every wardrobe mistress on Broadway has a collection of clothes and jewelry for various "types" -- you know the kind that help you size up a character in one glance. You can be sure that a cameo is used to portray someone with good breeding to say the least!
This is one of the prettiest cameos ever to grace a collar or lapel. And it just happens to be significant enough to have graced the glass-cased table of a dedicated cameo collector.
The background color is not the typical pink of the conch shell, but is a warm brownish color. The pretty profile carved on the cameo seems to be a lovely lady of the time, not a mythic character, nor god or goddess.
If you love cameos, feast your eyes at one of the pretties profiles ever to grace a classic cameo!
