18k gold Museum Quality High-relief carved agate/ hard-stone cameo brooch, 1870s
A rare subject as cameos depicting the portrait are not so common. From her jewels and dress we see that she is a member of the royal family. She looks so beautiful and peaceful with a gentle, sweet facial expression. The carving is high relief with wonderful details. Each hair is intricately carved which is very hard seen in regular hard stone profiles except master pieces. This is an incredible work of art; All the carving in this cameo is an artwork due to the skill of the carver. As shown in pictures, this cameo presents the best cameo carving skills of the time.
It truly represents a work of art. The frame is hallmarked with the French 18k gold standard mark in a form of an eagle's head in use in France from 1838. Size measuring: 27 mm / 1.1" including the frame; Cameo size: 21 mm / 0.85" weighting 6 g.
