This decorative pair of cameo reliefs were produced during the early 19th century, circa 1840. One of cameos features a profile of Petrus Magnus, Peter I, Emperor of Russia, 6th Son of Alexei, Tsar of Russia (b 1672 – d 1725). The remaining profile features Peter’s wife Catherine I, Empress of Russia (b 1684 – d 1727).

These miniature cameos are manufactured from embossed card and have been produced to the highest standard with an excellent level of detailing despite their small size. We have not been able to find another example of either of the profiles. Similar examples of famous British figures were produced in a series of embossed paper cameos produced by Charles Whiting.

The cameos are housed behind glass in attractive gold frames with gold painted mounts. This is a rare pare of items, the perfect items for anyone who collects rare and interesting ephemera.

Measuring: Frame width 5.25 inch (13.5 cm) by height 5.25 inch (13.5 cm). Cameo aperture diameter 1 7/8 inch (5 cm).

Condition: Unopened. Signs of general fading/aging to both card cameo relief detailing. Green profile shows evidence of blue paint under the green, mount of green profile has historic crack. Both frames gilding is dulled with age.
