Dating to the very early 1800's this dainty and graceful cameo brooch is rendered in silver gilt (sterling silver with a gold overlay) and it features a romantic carved shell cameo of a classical maiden mounted into neoclassical style frame.
A very pretty brooch that would have been worn on the lightweight floral silk gowns of the romantic Regency era the brooch has had some repairs during its long life. There is an old resin repair to the very top of the cameo that really isn't that obvious (it looks much worse on the photos) and the C-clasp looks like a Victorian replacement. Still a beautiful piece that deserves to be treasured again and we have priced her with these small flaws in mind. Please refer to photos as they form a good part of the description.
