This is an impressive Victorian cameo brooch carved in conch shell. It shows the profile of a woman in a classical style. The carving of the hair and the folds of the dress are particulary finely carved.
The cameo portrait has been mounted in an elegant plain gold surround with the only embellishment a fine twisted wire. The brooch fastens with a pin and hook.
