Cascading CURLS Carved 1930's Shell CAMEO Small Sterling Pendant

This is some of the inventory from my antique shop I closed over 17 years ago. I always bought my jewelry at estate sales. This group of cameos came from an estate near Chicago and another estate sale near Constantine, Michigan. I have always loved cameos and this week I am listing several of them along with other vintage jewelry.

This is a carved shell cameo pendant for a necklace. The lady has her hair pulled up in cascading curls. It is that lovely flesh shade on a peach background. It has an open back and the light comes through with that same pinkish glow. I include a photo of this in my hand so you get a better idea of the size.

The pendant measures 5/8" by 1". The back pin is in fine working order. I see no breaks or repairs. The frame is sterling silver. There is a mark on the bail. I date this one in the 1920's. These are great in a shadowbox with a lace hanky, some pearls and old Valentines. Use your imagination.
