PSCO stands for Plainville Stock Company was founded in 1884 in Plainville Massachusetts. Cameo carving has an ancient history dating back to 3 century BCE Greece. They are typically carved out of hardstone, shell or coral and can be used as jewelry or objets d’ art.
The brooch is in good condition with signs of tarnish on the back of the pin from its age. The c-clasp is functional but a little stiff a slightly bent. The clasp is stamped PSCO for Plainville Stock Co. The brooch is a little warped but could probably be gently bent back into shape. The brooch firmly attaches to fabric and doesn’t lay weird.
The brooch measures 1″ wide by 1-1/8″ tall.
