A glorious, Regency period, undulating cameo hand-carved into shell, with a female form in a graceful pose and swirling clothes, holding an hourglass.

The hourglass represents fleeting time, while the twirls under the crescent moon represent fertility.

This oval cameo is bezel set into a silver gilt mounting, with demi-lune beading and gadrooning.

It measures 2-1/4" x 1-15/16" with a c-curl catch and a pin stem on the verso.
