This cameo, most likely from Italy, offers a nicely carved portrait of a lovely lady -- whose bobbed hair provides the Art Deco dating, along the modernistic carving style. It's about 1.25 inches tall and very dimensional; there's a lot of depth to the shell.

Because this setting isn't worthy of her beauty, the piece is priced to allow for framing properly as a pendant, brooch or both. If the current mount were of gold or even hallmarked silver, you could add easily $100 to the cost, which is bargain basement for any pretty, hand-carved cameo that's from the 1920s or older -- thus antique by American 75-year standards.

So that she'll be wearable until you get around to finding a new frame, we've added a vintage chain that's 20 inches long and a good match for the current bright brass setting.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping -- with an equivalent discount on international delivery -- and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
