Antique Hand carved Italian Shell Cameo Brooch Pendant Marked 800 Silver carnelian conch shell Pin F163
This is a smaller cameo measuring about 1 x 3/4 inches. If you do not like large brooches this might be the right one. Would look real nice when worn as a pendant.The cameo is marked 800 silver. Typical of items actually made in Italy.. Very very pretty the design. I am guessing it is from the 1930's it is in great antique shape. Note the patina is easily removed if you want. I do not clean/polish these antique pieces as a lot of the time that is what adds to the character. Comes gift boxed.
