Tony's Gramma left Germany for Nebraska in 1916 at age 17. I wish I knew more of her journey. I wonder if she bought this on her way here. This looks to be black glass jet and I contacted the Whitby museum in UK but didn't get an answer. Red cameo must be glass and back is metal w/c clasp. It doesn't matter if it's just a tourist piece of **** but I would love to know if a teenage girl treated herself to this simple cameo and where she might have bought it.
I just saw a similar cameo on ebay (8/2/2014) that describes as red and black milkglass. That one is nearly identical but has a mark on back "made in Chechoslovakia" and mine doesn't.
