Antique Left-Facing Cameo Brooch Pendant 10k Gold

Antique hand-carved shell cameo. This cameo is a harder to find left facing cameo that is done in great detail. Left facing cameos are harder to find because they were carved by left handed people and there are less left handed people in the world. 

The setting is 10k yellow gold and has a hinged bail for a chain so that it can be worn as a pendant. It also has a pin back and locking clasp. 

Not marked. Acid tested for metal purity.

Measures 1 3/8" by 1 1/8". Note that the pin extends beyond the edge of the setting? That is a great indication of antique Victorian age. 

Weight: 8 grams.
