Antique Victorian Carved Scenic Shell Cameo Brooch Guitar Mandolin Border
Antique Victorian Carved Scenic Shell Cameo Brooch Guitar Mandolin Border. The piece is in great estate condition but there is a hole drilled into the cameo's border. I believe the metal is either brass or pinchbeck. The piece has a twist border and it is flanked on the sides with a crossed guitar and mandolin. The carved shell cameo depicts the silhouette of a woman standing in front of a cottage and tree in the background.
The cameo measures about .95" long by .75" wide and .25" thick. There is a spot on the border when one could attach a chain to wear as a necklace if one wished but it was NOT designed to be worn this way.
