Shell Cameo Fabulous Vintage early 1900's high relief pendant Brooch mounted in a silver marcasite setting L"Amour et Psyche and Cupid F191

I believe this shell cameo was originally sold strictly as a brooch. There is a ring at the top of the cameo, this would have been for a small chain and a safety pin which would then be pinned on the garment for extra security against loss. This was common when cameos had C-clasps in the 1800's. However this cameo does have a rotating safety catch ( just nice to have that pendant option). The cameo setting is stamped 800 silver. This identifies the metal as 80% silver, typical of items actually made in Italy. This cameo has a Marcasite inlay..... Very very pretty pin or pendant. The cameo I am guessing is from the 1920's- 1930's it is in great antique shape with just a slight bend to the pin (please review all photos ).. Note the patina is easily removed if you want. I do not clean or polish these antique pieces as a lot of the time that is what adds to the character. Comes gift boxed and is shipped insured.......
