VERY GOOD: This antique 15ct Gold Bullmouth Shell portrait cameo brooch is in fantastic condition. The cameo itself is of very high quality indeed, and you can clearly see the immaculate precision and care taken into making this relic. There is no signs of damage or wear to note, but there is a little antique solder mark inside the brooch, which cannot be seen when worn. Nevertheless, the pin is in perfect working order - so you can wear this brooch with the confidence it deserves.
