Cameo Pin 12kt GF Black Lip Mother of Pearl 1950s CATAMORE Brooch $195

Cameo Pin 12kt GF Black Lip Mother of Pearl 1950s CATAMORE Brooch

Of all the antique and vintage cameo pins ever made, of my very favorite are those carved from premium specimens of Black Lip Mother of Pearl. 

Unlike shell cameos, BL MOP cameos really catch your eye because they appear to have a life of their own and light up from within. This superb cameo was made in the 1950s and it is designer signed Catamore 1/20 12kt GF. 

I admire the long slender look of this brooch and the striking double rope gold frame. The black lip has great reflective quality and reflects brilliant pastel hues within. This brooch can also be worn as a pendant with the addition of a gold metal brooch slider which you can add on my site. 

Medium large in size, the brooch is 1 5/8" long x 1" wide or 42 mm x 26 mm. The entire brooch is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. There is no gold wear or loss of gold. The Mother of Pearl settings are perfect with no chips, cracks, scratches, or loss of natural sheen. The back of the brooch has the original fine working safety clasp and the Catamore 1/20 12kt GF cartouche.  

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.
