COMMENTS: This exquisitely carved shell cameo set in a 9k gold frame. The complex relief carving depicts a farm scene with a character tending to their horse in the foreground. The scene’s background renders the farmhouse or barn, and several highly detailed trees. It required a master carver to portray such an intricate scene in such a small delicate space. The frame is 9k gold, the pin backing is not gold. If you are a carved shell cameo collector, you know full scene cameos are unusual and rare. This cameo is an excellent example of the artistic heights that can be reached by a master shell carver. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
