Czech Glass Cameo

Here's a beauty from the early 20th Century! The Czechs were the masters of glass making for the first half of the Twentieth Century. This piece is no exception. Framed in its original silver metal filigree setting, the cameo features two beautiful women in faux ivory pressed glass. The edge around the figures is red enamel with some fading from age at the bottom. The measurements are 2 1/2" long and 2" wide. The back of the cameo is signed Made in Czechoslovakia. The safety clasp works well for the pin. The hinge may have been repaired at some point, but is secure.
