This Cameo is breath-taking, besides being in excellent condition. One tiny crack at the bottom (which I showed in the picture) is the only defect. For the size and the carving of this cameo, that is really insignificant! This piece measures 2 ½” long and 2 1/8” wide. I believe this is a portrait of a Bacchante maiden, follower of Dionysus (Bacchus), god of wine and fertility, with grape leaves in her hair and on her shoulder. She has the straight Roman nose suggesting she is an older cameo, circa late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The carving is excellent and a tri-colored shell provides lovely contrast. The frame test as 12K gold, but there are no markings. She really is a beauty and very hard to find at this size and in this condition!

This high relief cameo pin is just beautiful. It measures 1 ¾” by 1 ½” wide. I believe it is made out of Lava stone. The frame has the twisted gold wire around the brass with gold washed frame. The leaves on the side are brass. The cameo has a “c” clasp. Would circa date it around 1890 to 1900.

Exceptionally great carving of a Lady wearing pearls or beads. The head is very Romanist, probably a figure from Mythology. She is set in Chrome and can either be a pin or a pendant. It measures 1 ¾” by 1 ½” and the depth is a little over ½”. It has the older European clasp. It would make a great addition to any Cameo Collection. It's a beauty.

Set in 800 silver with a wire worked frame; I'd say this pin is Italian. It seems to be a painted picture of the head of the Virgin Mary. It's taken from Raphael's Madonna and Child with the Infant St John (Madonna of the Goldfinch). It measures 1 3/4" tall and 1 1/4" wide and has a safety clasp. (Circa 1900) The artist has signed VALY on the front of the portrait and 800 is marked on the frame.

The frame is done in a twisted and looped sliver tone wire. It testes as 800, low grade silver. It is in good condition, with a tiny bit of the twisted wire off at the top. This is a cameo that is harder to find than most and a very pretty cameo.

This necklace has a dainty silver box link chain adorned with three lovely carved shell cameos. The carvings look like a woman or angel sitting on a bench holding up a ball. The center cameo has twisted brass cording around the silver bezel and measures 7/8" long and 6/8" wide and the other two cameos are 5/8" by ½". This necklace has no marks. The earrings measure 6/8" by 5/8", are screw backs and are marked 800. The earrings are the same shell coloring, but seem to have a different carving. These look like an angel sitting on a bench holding a harp! The circa dating on these would probably be 30's or early 40's. Although, I purchased these as a set, I believe they are a great marriage, but not a demi-parure. I'm still going to sell them as a set!
