This is a cute little sterling silver brooch that was given to my mom in law (born 1926) by her aunt (her mom's sister) along with a hand written note saying it was "good" jewelry, but did not give a date. I got the impression it has been in my mom in law's family for at least 150 years. I actually found it after she passed away in a box marked "Joy"(me). It is sterling and with a cameo type figure on it and seems to have a crude type of maker's mark which is impossible to get in the picture. It is an R or P. It has tiny pearls set in silver around the cameo, as well as each end of the bar. I do know it came from Scotland!
Can someone tell me whether it is Georgian or Victorian. I would really like....if anyone knows of one....a website that has good references to this type of jewelry. I am trying to research some other cameo jewelry also :)
