Circa Late 1800's Early 1900"s. 1 1/2" L by 1 5/12"W, 1/4"D.
Isn't she lovely...isn't she wonderful???
I don't know much about Cameos. Truth is...I never really appreciated them much. And then, I saw this and it cause a grasp of sensation. Such a beautiful noble and proud women of status. Is it me or do you see confident wisdom in her face too? How passionate the artist must have been to capture the shadows that express this soul so well. I wonder who she is? I wonder what she meant to him (the artist)?
She is set in beautiful sterling silver filigree with lined rolled edges with old style prongs and clasp.
I'm so tempted to shine her setting...but will leave that to the buyer.
