This most unique and intriguing hand carved antique cameo is after Vien's Cupid Seller, which was itself based on an engraved ancient Roman wall fresco unearthed in Naples. The idea of a lady buying a cupid is such that she will then consequently gain the ability to instigate love from a man.

Wow, can you believe it? If that's true then these poor little fellows must be selling like hotcakes! Fortunately I guess no authorities need to be notified about caging little children (or cupids more accurately) for that matter, we'll all be very happy to take the idea only on a metaphor level.

The cameo is beautifully carved with nice balance, good fluidity, and lots lots of details, and in very gold condition too! There is a dark mark to the left edge which may be a piece of dirt and the shell seems to have a small nick at the same spot, not obvious when worn, the caving is still very crisp and fresh, no sign of worn or abrasion.

It is set in a solid 9k yellow gold (marked) frame with its original safety chain and safety pin, the pin back is in good working order.

Measures approx. a bit over 2 inches by 1-5/8 inches, weighs 13.7 grams. One of a Kind!
