    Gifted to me in my Grandmother's will. Have no real info, just the box it came in and an old appraisal. Just really have no idea what I have. Looks good but is really big and I do not see many floral cameo's out there. Just thought I would share what I have and see if anyone had any insight into this cameo.

      Dear Kapink4849,
      What a wonderful carved cameo. Mounted, I think in how much ct gold? Can you see some hallmarks?

      Beautiful. Cameos like that are so classy.

      Giovanni Apa is one of the best Cameo Jewelers in the world, and they still exist. Check out their website.
      Your cameo, especially considering the size, is likely very valuable. Note the prices on the custom pieces set in 18K gold, yours also looks one-of-a-kind. With the rarer subject of flowers and the high relief, you really have an amazing heirloom. The original box doesn't hurt either. Looks like it could be an earlier piece, maybe 19th C.
      Lovely, thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the interest everyone. The size is 2-1/8"wide and 2-13/16"long. I believe it is 14k and I do not see any markings but I really have no idea what to look for. All of the info I have is right here from the old appraisal

      I would really love to know what time period you have determined this cameo to be from. I was given an APA cameo that came in a box that has the same coloring and font style, and similar wording as this APA cameo.
