Unset Late 19th C Hand Sculpted Carnelian Agate Cameo, French 18th Century Lady? For Sale

Unset Late 19th C Hand Sculpted Carnelian Agate Cameo, French 18th Century Lady?

Offered for sale is a very fine, unset, hand carved (sculpted & engraved) hardstone, orange and white banded carnelian agate cameo that probably dates, as judged by its style, to the late 19th century. The subject of the cameo is the portrayal of a beautiful young woman in what appears to be 18th century dress with long her hair done up in a coiffure reminiscent of the late 18th or early 19th centuries. She is wearing a low cut dress reminiscent of that period and has a simple ribbon tired in a bow around her slender neck. She also has a rose corsage and flowers in her hair. This cameo is probably an idealized portrait of some historical or famous individual of that time, Mari Antoinette come to mind. It is beautifully sculpted by a talented an accomplished artist-sculptor with great skill an attention to detail. The style of this cameo suggests that this cameo dates to the late 19th.

This cameo is medium in size, approximately 24.5mm tall by 18.50mm wide. It is sculpted in high relief with fine detail. This gem could almost be considered a “two color” cameo in that the engraver has left a “blush” of color from another band of colored agate that existed above the white portrait layer to highlight the flowers in her hair and the dress on her shoulder. This is a very fine cameo very fine condition with no damage what so ever. The greyish background layer of agate framing the white layered portrait is polished. This is true sculpture in miniature, which is what fine cameos are, they are art. It was probably brought back from Europe as a souvenir of the “Grand Tour’ and appears to have never been set in a jewel.

This cameo should be of interest to any serious collector of engraved gems, cameos or intaglios, or to any person wishing to buy an exceptional cameo for setting in a jewel.
