Antique Cameo Brooch Repousse Brass Painted Unusual Vintage Jewelry
• Materials: brass, paint
• Maker: unknown
• Approximate Year: c1930s
• Size: 1-5/8" x 1[1/4"
This unusual cameo is made of brass, with an embossed, repousse design. It is also hand painted with brown and white colors, with some of the white paint selectively removed to accent the hair (I believe this is true, although this might just be age-related wear.) The frame has a finely etched Art Nouveau floral pattern. The brooch measures 1-5/8 x 1-1/4 inches, and it has "c" style clasp. I will lightly polish it before shipping, unless requested otherwise. It will be shipped in a gift box.
