Excellent quality cameo brooch depicting a lady. Front face cameos are rare to find and this is an excellent example. The frame is lovely too, 18 k gold with engravings on the crossovers. This is an lovely work of art, very detailed cameo, carved by an artist. Rare cameo and subject very desirable collectors' piece.
