Hand-carved intaglios (also known as cameos) were brought back to England as souvenirs by wealthier graduates who customarily spent a year abroad seeing the historic sites they'd studied. Originally carved in semi-precious gemstones, these became replicated in plaster by London craftsmen since the 19th century. This intaglio was likely framed or re-framed the middle of 20th century.


Framed in a 5.5" walnut frame with brass hanging fixture measuring at 6.5" total height.
Intaglio is 1.75" in diameter.
