This magnificent, majestic, neoclassic cameo is a studied impression of a Roman warrior in full attire. And doesn’t he look marvelous? The expert carving created a white background with colored highlights on the warrior bringing out accents in his plumed hat and coat.
The shell cameo is bezel set in 10k gold and has a slight rose gold cast to it. There are slight imperfections in the shell on the right that are part of the original shell.
The pin is 1 3/4” tall and 2 1/4” wide. It is domed and has an arresting shape which the artist took advantage of. It is marked 10k on the clasp and is in excellent vintage condition with a warm patina.
