Victorian 18ct Gold Shell Cameo of Classical Lady

258 Admirers

A well executed and highly detailed cameo of a lady with a Greco/Roman hairstyle. Cameos were extremely popular in the 18th and 19th centuries as they were tokens of the past. There was huge interest in Archaeological finds and tourists travelled to Italy and Greece to see the marvels that were being unearthed. This example was probably carved in Naples then exported to England where it was mounted with an Etruscan style 18ct gold frame.
