The gold setting is likewise of extremely high quality, very well made with old pin style construction visible around the interior of the frame, and is quite heavy. The outer edge of the frame is done as a border of stylized wave decoration, nicely textured and well done. The brooch has an old C style clasp in the back. This piece is in great condition.
There is one line in the cameo in the upper left, but the cameo is still sound and this is quite minor. The setting is in great shape and the clasp is working well.
The gold is not stamped or hallmarked that we could find, but we have tested it with nitric acid and guarantee it to be 18 karat gold. The cameo is signed Saulini F. For the workshop of renowned cameo carver, Tommaso Saulini.
The cameo measures about 2 ¼ by 2 inches. The cameo weighs 28.5 grams, or 1 ounce.
