Shell Cameo Boys in Sailboat with Micromosaic Border

I love this shell cameo because of the action of the subject! You can feel the wind and sea spray in the Bay of Naples where two boys sail their small boat. Mount Vesuvias whispers clouds of steam in the background. It measures 2 & 1/8 by 1 & 3/4 inches and is in excellent condition. The mosaic tesserae are not ground flat, but they are very tiny and well ordered in colorful flowers of varying size between tomato red stations. The shell is a lovely lithophane held to the light, and the outer border is a gilded brass twisted rope. Really a pretty and perfect piece whether pinned or pendent.
