This is one of the very finest quality cameos that I have encountered in the past 40 years. It depicts a classical garden scene with a cherub offering a cup to a garden nymph who is seated on tiered steps with one hand outreached toward the cup and the other resting on a lion head fountain. The carving and detail of this cameo are exceptional. It is set in a stamped 14k gold setting and can be worn as a brooch or a pendant. There appears to be a name etched on the back side of the cameo, however I cannot distinguish it. It measures 1 ¾ inches by 1 ¼ inches. The early scenic cameos are hard to find and very desirable. This is a fine example and would make a great addition to your collection.
