Vtg Hand-carved Shell Cameo Brooch Or Pendant, Set In 900 Sterling Silver:
This is a vintage, very lovely hand-carved shell cameo brooch or pendant, set in 900 sterling silver. The back of the brooch features a small attached flexible silver ring at the top, should you want to thread a silver chain through and wear this as a pendant. The cameo itself is hand-set high into a silver bezel and then mounted onto a sterling silver frame with a decorative silver twisted rope around it. The brooch is signed 900 on the underside of the frame (see second-from-last photo below).
The brooch measures 1⅛" down by ⅞" across (NOT counting the little silver ring at the top), and the cameo itself is carved from just one piece of shell. Featured is the profile of a Lovely young woman with an elaborate curly hair-do, a wide open eye, and and wearing button or pearl earrings and a graduated pearl necklace. There appears to be a strand of pearls woven in and about her hair. Overall condition is excellent - absolutely NOTHING wrong with this! What a lovely gift this would be for a young girl just learning to appreciate fine hand-made sterling silver jewelry.
