A really unusual antique carved shell cameo depicting a dreamy scene with a rider and horses beside a boat on a lake with a distant mountainous landscape. The image is in high relief - the result of hours of work by a skilled craftsman - and the detail remains beautifully crisp.
The fact the cameo is unframed gives it a timeless quality - but a piece like this never goes out of fashion!
In good antique condition, the edge is a little nibbled around the edges at the back and there are a few stress lines (see photos), but there are no penetrating cracks and no chips to the raised design.
Size: 4.5 x 3.7cm.
