    This large brooch (3 1/4 inches) is unmarked. It is in the Art Nouveau style, but there is a possibility that it dates to the 1960's because I found a simple, oval brooch with a cameo very close to my one and the seller said that it was new old stock from the sixties.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Wish I knew more about Cameos, sadly I do not.
      But there are people who do in "Fine Jewelry" , one being "cameoslueth"....

      These resin cameos of Diana hunting with her hound are still being made in various colors & tend to be set in vintage looking mounts, more often now as pendants, since brooches are out of fashion.

      The seller of this one also represents it as new old stock from the 60s:

      https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/87UAAOSwoSFbT-oT/s-l1600.jpg

      but many in more vintage looking settings are represented as new.

      Looking at the stamped brass mount & the way the resin has been blended in an attempt to mimic the uneven color of natural helmet shell, I'm inclined to think yours is vintage rather than new trying to look vintage

      Really fun piece, the setting makes it special. :)
