Art Deco Shell Cameo
A beautiful seascape with an erupting volcano, sailing ship and beachfront accented by rippling waters. Hand etched natural shell cameo, oval in shape and framed by lined unique gold fill square links and a rope edge. Can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant. The perfect size and weight for a scarf, sweater, coat, hat or bag. The outer frame of links has some bent and flattened edges (please view photos / priced accordingly.) There are NO cracks or breaks to shell or metal work. The pin and lock are in perfect working order. The pendant loop accommodates a chain up to 3mm. There is some tarnish that I did not clean as it highlights the age of this beautiful piece.

Shells are usually perceived as feminine; a symbol of birth, good fortune, and resurrection. Shell stimulates intuition, sensitivity, imagination and adaptability.
