A beautiful early 20th century to late Edwardian cameo, a Grand Tour souvenir, no doubt. This one is mounted in a fine and hallmarked 9k gold mount, yellow in color. The carving is charming, detailed and a scene with 4 figures, including 2 putti, and a lyre-playing woman. I travel to Italy regularly and I know that a cameo of this quality and size, detail, purchased now would be more than double our list price.
Very good to excellent condition, I see no chips or cracks to diminish either value nor enjoyment in owning this one. It is large at 2" x 1.5" oval and is 3/8" deep. Photos do not do this one justice. The carving is lovely.
