This is an exceptional hardstone cameo dating back to the early Victorian era. Cameos were a jewellery trend of the Victorian period and were made popular by notables such as Queen Elizabeth and Catherine the Great. They raised positive relief portraits and were predominately of women, making this cameo's handsome and lifelike male portrayal a rare collectible. The cameo has been crafted in the white section of the stone with a polished black background. It has an old cut diamond border and is an exceptionally well made piece and perfect for a collector. The back of this cameo is also a locket which still features hair from a loved one of the original owner.
Antonio Vergé is known to have produced hardstone cameos for Fortunato Castellani in the late 1840's and 1850's and was well respected in the industry.
