Item details

Vintage from the 1930s




Length: 2 Inches; Width: 1 5/8 Inches


I am not an expert and am offering this piece based on it's age and beauty (I am not including the metal value of the setting in my price...just the beauty of the obviously hand crafted setting). That being said, it looks like brass to me. I have not tested the metal because as I said, I really doesn't matter to me and I don't have a testing kit anyway :).

This piece could actually be older than the 30's (again, not an expert).

Please be sure to look at all of the photos to see the lovely details of this cameo and setting

It measures 2 inches long, by just a tad under 1 5/8 inches wide.

There are no marks on this piece, neither a makers mark nor a setting material mark. That being said, it is obviously a hand carved cameo and a hand made setting (see photo's).

I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking on this gorgeous old piece.

Note: Due to rarity of this piece, it will ship priority mail insured with tracking and will require your signature upon delivery. Thank you :) -Casey

Vintage items will say Vintage, Genuine Vintage or Old in the item title and item details.

My new, hand oxidized items will say Vintage Style (or Sty) in the title and item details.

My new, hand oxidized items are all genuine brass (naturally nickel and lead free) and Made in the USA.
Many sizes are stated in mm (or millimeters).

There are approximately 25mm to 1 inch.

So a size of 25x18mm would be about 1 inch by just under 3/4 inch.

Swarovski crystals and chaton (round) stones are stated in ss (stone size) or pp (pearl plate).

Sheet metal and wire is measured in gauge size and is usually shown as a number followed by g (for example 22g sheet metal).

Visit my shop DIY Kits | Tutorials category for charts that convert the above measurements to inches, millimeters, and carats.
Most of my hand oxidized pieces have a natural (matte and unsealed) patina. Some items have been coated with a protective sealant (especially hand oxidized chain).

Naturally occurring patina are items that have a patina that has developed on it's own over the years.

Please see item details to determine whether the item is hand oxidized with natural patina, if the patina has been sealed, or whether it is naturally occurring patina.
