Vintage Scallop framed natural Shell Cameo Brooch. Lovely shell Cameo is both pendant and brooch or pin. The Cameo profile is of a young lady, with corkscrew curls, hair-up and head faced slightly downward. The Cameo is bezel set on a scalloped oval frame with a rope edging in between the two. The back safety clasp catch is soldered and in good working order. The Cameo has some imperfections which is natural due to fact that it is seashell and the age of the item. Overall a beautifully executed Cameo carving. Pendant has a 4 mm jump ring attachment to add a chain or one can simply wear as a brooch.
