Antique Madonna Shell Sterling Silver Cameo Brooch Pendant

$1,200

About

An inspiring portrait of the Blessed Mother is hand carved to create this lovely oval antique shell cameo brooch. Artisan framed in toned sterling silver, the Madonna's image has extraordinary fine life-like detail. This endearing piece can be converted from a pin to be worn as a pendant as it is fitted with an hinged eyelet that is hidden and can be folded into position when needed. Measuring 1-7/8 inch by 1-5/8inch, the cameo is in excellent condition and makes a beautiful and thoughtful keepsake. Gift boxed.
