Vtg 14 Karat Gold Stick Pin, With Large Left-facing Hand-carved Shell Cameo:
This is a wonderful vintage left-facing hand-carved shell cameo stick pin, set in 14 karat yellow gold!. The cameo is hand-set high into a gold bezel and then mounted onto a round swirled gold frame with a tiny gold rope all around (see photos below). The gold frame is signed 14K on a small gold plaque on the underside, followed by some numbers and other characters (see last photo below). Featured is the left-facing profile of a young girl with an odd curly hair-do, a full-open eye, and wearing a large leaf and flower on top of her head (probably is a hat of some kind). Also, you see a sort of floating leaf at her left shoulder.
The cameo is relatively large for being on a stick - 1¼" long by 1" across, and it's carved from just one piece of shell. The hand-carving on this is superb!! The girl's eye, nose, and mouth REALLY LOOK LIKE an eye, nose, and mouth. Overall condition is excellent - absolutely nothing wrong with this. You can begin wearing this stick pin as soon as you remove it from it's wrappings.
