These cameos are hand carved IN 3 DIMENSIONAL BAS-RELIEF from a single piece of shell, do not confuse with modern copies which are composites
made from a top half machine carved attached to a bottom half with glue.

These are one piece, came from Italy in 1954.

They only appear that way due to AB effect (natural), actually all Mother of Pearl Are White and Black Lip Are Black. Of course, you knew that!
