I posted this a few years ago, but because the pictures were blurry I deleted it. Pretty, 2-25"x 2" shell cameo with "Lamont" scratched on the back. There are no metal marks but it appears the seller swabbed the pin for metal content. The frame seems to be silver to me.
I would love to hear from Cameoslueth and Cameojan with any comments. It looks Victorian but I really don't know much about cameos! I don't think this is high grade but it could have been a fairly expensive tourist item from Italy.
Also, I know it is dirty and would appreciate comments on best way to clean and condition old shell. Thank you friends.
