I recently received this cameo that belonged to my paternal grandmother. She was Sicilian and passed away in the late 1950's. The lady with the urn seems like an Italian or Greek theme.
The piece has been stored for over 50 years, so it needs cleaning, which might also tell me what the metal is. The clasp is broken, but it could be worn as a necklace.
Any suggestions as to age or material are welcome. It is a definitely carved cameo. No artist markings of any kind.
