Toward the end of the romantic period (1837 - 1860) of the Victorian era profile cameos became as popular a subject matter as they are today. Most of the cameos that were completed in the classic Greek profile (straight nose) date prior to 1860. The shorter nose profile (turned up) became popular around the turn of the 20th century.
