Antique high relief shellcameo brooch of medusas head held by Perseus. It has an etched frame and tube hinge. The frame is not in mint condition but the cameo is.
I posted this in my Instagram (I have an acount for sharing not selling) and a collector told be he/she thought this quite an unusual cameo different from other medusa broches that person had seen. I don´t know if that´s the case as this is my very first cameo.
Would love coments with ideas and information about this brooch. I have not been able to find any marks.
More information: There is no signature that I can see, I have looked again. It's a small brooch only 3 x 3,5 cm. The cameo face stands out 1,8 cm from the base of the brooch and 1 cm from the highest part of the metallsetting.
