    This Cameo has passed down through my family. It belonged to my Grandfathers mother and I think that it is probably late 19c or very early 20c. I don't know much about it, except I have been told that it is museum quality. I don't think that the broach mount it Gold.

      It's beautiful, but need to see the back of it in order to tell you how old it is.

      Efesgirl, I have now added a photo of the back of the cameo. Thanks

      It's Victorian. Possible that the metal may be what's called Pinchbeck.
