It has a smooth gilt mount with, a spiral gilt frame and has a single spherical finial to the top, lacking the one from the bottom.
It has an old C type clasp, the pin is base metal.
Good condition overall, some fine lines in the shell, a little tarnish and some soft solder marks underneath the frame, would have been another gold ball finial, removed or lost.
The shell is very fine and delicate.
