Museum Quality Cameo depicting two Cherubs, one of them is painting. I think the subject could be after a painting of a famous Italian painter, but I'm still trying to identify who he could be. This is an incredible work of art, very detailed cameo, carved by an artist. The frame is simple but very elegant, very finely worked, all 15K gold. Rarest cameo very desirable collectors' piece.
