ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A really finely carved shell cameo of a lady’s head, made by Neri, one of the best shell cameo craftsman in Italy in the 19th century. The mount represents the best of Etruscan revival gold work and is in fantastic condition. It was made circa 1860-1880 and was most likely a commission.
