A charming sterling silver Edwardian pendant with a carved shell cameo of a classical maiden that is just lovely, it has been very nicely carved making the most of the beautiful colouring in the shell.
The oval cameo is mounted in a very decorative rectangular silver frame that is embossed in a pretty Art Nouveau design with cut outs. The silver is oxidised in the low spots which highlights the frame design out beautifully.
The pendant suspends from an 18" sterling silver belcher/rolo chain, if you prefer a shorter chain let us know and we will remove some of the small links for you.
