This is a small antique Victorian cameo brooch. It was made to look like a
lava cameo, but it is made of an early type of plastic or rubber. I am unsure
of the exact material, as I have never run across it before. The color is a dusty
rose pink and the profile is done in a very high relief. The setting is a dark gold
brassy tone. There is a simple C clasp with a tube type hinge. The pin stem
extends past the actual brooch. Very old piece. The pin is C1860.
1" by 3/4"
---The setting shows some wear.
---Someone has scraped a small section of the back of the cameo.
(I presume to test the material.)
