Tiny Antique Hand Carved Shell Left Facing Cameo with no Setting

Antique hand carved Italian Cameo. It was once set in a gold bezel, but the previous owner sold the setting for melt. It has no setting.
This cameo is a 1940's cameo that we call "Hollywood Cameos". These were mass produced, hand carved but with less detail and were set in gold, gold fill, silver and costume jewelry. I love her face it is almost like an animation.
It measures 29 mm by 15 mm. Not signed. Weighs 2.6 grams.
It has not been cleaned and is a little dirty. I have learned from collectors that they do not want them cleaned, they want them in original condition so here it is!.
