Vintage Cameo Brooch by UK Firm Exquisite
This is a beautiful piece of costume jewellery. It certainly emulates the higher priced cameos with a Midsummers Eve theme....I am unsure of the material used for the centrepiece....it is either a heavy stone, or resin. It is marked "Exquisite" which was a UK jewellery company operating in Solihull and manufacturing their jewellery between the mid 1950's and early 1970's. They were well known for high quality costume jewellery production, and this piece is no exception. The cameo scene is surrounded by goldtone and that little frame follows the curve of the centrepiece it was carved from. There is a firm roll over pin to the back and it is in excellent condition for a piece at least 45 years old. Overall dimension - approx. 4.5cms across. Gift boxed for giving.
