Swedish Victorian Finely Carved Agate Cameo Yellow Gold Brooch


A beautiful Victorian cameo created in Sweden in 1880, depicting an elegant lady's profile. Splendid forethought and execution make this cameo particularly desirable. Swedish hallmarks on the brooch make for a fun story, created in Sweden by a master carver of unknown decent and training.
