This is museum quality cameo of a noble Lady, probably an English lady. Circa 1850, signed T. Saulini (T. means Tommaso Saulini) Look at the expression of her face, so pensive, she seems alive. The muscles of her face, the ones of her neck, even the bones at the base of her neck are visible. This is a real artwork. The frame is silver. Saulini cameos are rarest and hard to find, as the collectors know. This one is an artwork. This is an incredible work of art, very detailed cameo, carved by an artist and signed. Saulini's have made the real History of the cameo's carving art. Rarest cameo and subject very desirable collectors' piece.
