Large Antique Silver and Carved Shell Cameo.
A very striking large shell cameo with skilfully carved classical figures and beautifully detailed draping fabrics.
The brooch is marked Borricello. The cameo is set in a plain scooped mount with a decorative rope twist border.
A spring pin catch and a silver safety chain complete the piece.
This piece is in very good condition commensurate with age.
A wonderful example of “ Grand Tour “ jewellery.
