High Relief Banded Agate 14K Pearl Cameo Victorian
Fantastic museum quality high relief cameo. Expertly carved and perfectly modeled. The cameo is done on banded agate know as "hard stone" cameo instead of the softer shell cameos. These hardstone cameos require a much more skilled carver and it really shows on this piece. Outstanding frame with pearls and great carving. Catch has been replaced with a safety catch and no damage other than a possible minor scrape to the highest area of the hair. Fantastic overall condition and appearance. Circa 1880. Weighs .925 of an ounce and measure 2 1/4" with bail. Pin or pendant. A superb addition to any cameo collection.
