Reduced - Purchased from an English estate, here is a lovely antique cameo. Family member said a male ancestor had purchased it for his mother when he was on a Grand Tour. Measures 2.25 inches tall - subject has an interesting, patrician look (looks male to me). Hand carved, Very nice, buttery gold frame - has not been tested. Back has a "c" clasp and a strong stabilizing bar. The price is no indication of the quality - I got a very good deal on this piece which I'm passing on to you. Free (domestic) shipping - insurance at your option.
