Antique Carved Flower Sardonyx shell carved sterling silver cameo pendant brooch. Beautiful carved Sardonyx shell cameo has a deep color with exceptionally detailed carving. It has a very high relief making it stick out far past the setting. The back has both brooch and pendant fastening. Good vintage condition with small signs of normal wear. There is a gold filled twisted rope accent around the sterling silver bezel setting. Stamped on the pin stem but unable to identify bad strike. Tube hinge with early clasp.
Acid tests positive for sterling silver.
Brooch measures 1 and 6/16ths of an inch tall (without bail) and 1 inch wide.
