This is a wonderful hand carved 19th century Cameo of what looks like a classical or mythological lady, the quality of the carving is simply stunning and it took me back when I handled the pin for the first time so could not really resist, its just so well carved and so detailed its really a cut above (Pardon the Pun). Not a later carving its 19th century and original with the nice feature of also having a glassed locket back as well, just a sensational pin. It possibly needs a gentle clean but we have not touched it as its exactly as it was discovered. Size: The cameo itself is 4 cm x 3.2 cm not counting the Gold mount. Came from a small estate clearance originally, just as found and not cleaned.
