Hello, and welcome to our auctions. This auction is for a lava cameo, c. 1850-1860-'s. It was purchased in Maryland some years ago. It measures 1.5 inches long and 1.25 inches wide. It is a greenish tan color and has a wonderful profile image in the Greek style. The lava is perfect. The frame is gold and handmade. It has a good working c-clasp and you can see how the frame is handmade in back. (the back image has more of a yellow tint because of my husband experimenting with the digital camera- the front image is accurate color). It is a lovely piece that I bought for reenacting. Now that I am out of the hobby I have little chance to wear it. A great piece for the collector. The free listing tool. List your items fast and easy and manage your active items.
