Brooch / pendant in 18 karat yellow gold, eagle's head hallmark. Octagonal shaped with an openwork circle pattern and studded with natural pearls, this pendant holds a cameo on 4-layered agate representing the left profile of a bust woman. The back opens like a medallion to incorporate a photo or lock of hair. For the brooch, the hanging system is a pin with safety hook. The latter bends and the pin unscrews to allow the jewel to be worn as a pendant. The removable bail is in the shape of an openwork lily flower. Height : approximately 5.7 cm, Width : approximatley 3 cm, Cameo Size: 2.1 cm x 2.7 cm. Total weight of the jewel : approximately 18.5 g. Authentic antique jewel - French work of the 19th century, a tiny agate pearl is missing from the elegant necklace, very little visible. Our opinion : Rare, the antique cameo is magnificent. A superb antique collector's item reserved for enlightened amateurs. The story of this jewel : Presented in a shaped and original case in leather and velvet, this jewel was purchased from the prestigious Maison Aucoc, supplier to the Emperor and the Queen of England.
