This beautiful large size antique cameo brooch dates to around 1910 and is very much in the Art Nouveau style. It features an elegant cut out silver setting that frames a finely carved shell cameo of a classical Grecian maiden with flowers in her hair against a peach background. The carving is particularly good and beautifully detailed down to the iris in her eye.
It is in wonderful condition with absolutely no flaws, it benefits from decorative silver clip on safety chain and the pin back is in perfect working order. Lovely piece of Art Nouveau jewellery with a particularly attractive cameo!

GEMSTONE: carnelian shell
MEASUREMENTS: 2" (5cm) high, 1-3/4" wide (4.5cm) with the cameo measuring 35x28mm
