A VICTORIAN 15CT GOLD BROOCH SET WITH A CARVED SHELL CAMEO. THE CAMEO IS VERY RARE IN THAT IT DEPICTS A CHINESE OR ORIENTAL SCENE, SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER BEFORE COME ACROSS.

WHEN HELD TO THE LIGHT, THERE ARE SOME VERY SMALL HAIRLINE STRESS CRACKS TO THE CAMEO ON ONE SIDE WHICH ARE NOT OTHERWISE VISIBLE. THE PIN HINGE HAS HAD A PROFESSIONAL OLD REPAIR, AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. THERE IS ALSO A SMALL LOSS TO THE LEAF DESIGN AROUND THE EDGE BUT THIS IS GENERALLY A LOVELY PIECE AND IN GREAT CONDITION CONSIDERING ITS AGE. THERE ARE NO HALLMARKS BUT IT HAS BEEN ACID TESTED AND IS GUARANTEED ALL GENUINE AS DESCRIBED. THE BROOCH MEASURES 2 ½ INCHES HIGH AND 2 ¼ INCHES WIDE. THE SAFETY CHAIN IS STILL IN PLACE AND THE BROOCH COMES WITH ITS ORIGINAL ANTIQUE BOX, WHICH IS BROKEN ALONG THE HINGE. We will be happy to answer all questions. Where relevant, items will be shown next to a ruler to show size.
