Antique Hardstone Cameo Brooch

Auction: Fine Jewelry - 2932B Location: Boston Date / Time: September 27, 2016 10:00AM


Antique Hardstone Cameo Brooch, France, depicting a Roman lady with a palla drawn over her head as a veil, framed by rose-cut diamonds, with pearl accents, lg. 2 1/2 in., maker's mark and guarantee stamps.
Estimate $500-700

the cameo is overall very good- under a loupe there is apparently a slight chip to the ear/veil but not obtrusive. A couple of minor edge nicks. The frame has a couple of bends, and there is a drop lacking.
