Finely detailed old shell cameo, Our Lady of Carmel


A lovely piece, a very finely carved shell cameo of Our Lady of Carmel, holding The Child, each with a crown of stars.  Beautiful carving, even to the fine details of her clothing with fine folds and draping.  The Child’s dress is also detailed.  Set in to a vermeil (gold wash over silver) frame with elegantly formed leaves.  Either brooch or pendant, there is a hinged loop on the back and a functioning roller clasp.  Approximately 1 3/4″ tall x 1 1/2″ wide.  Excellent old condition.
