More than Museum Quality cameo depicting a little girl from the Victorian era This subject is rarest.  I have never seen it until now. Look at her sweet face, her small nose that is perfect. Her little finger who sofly leans on her mouth. Her dress and even her ruffled bonnet. Her curly hair styled in the Victorian manner.  She really is alive. Have you ever seen anything of sweeter? There are no words to describe a beauty like this cameo. The pictures speak by themselves. Look at them and you'll be amazed by all the details that are perfectly carved. This is surely the fruit of a greatest master carver that with his painstaking work, his ability, his skill and his art was able to make in the ivory a real work of art as everything is so realistic. This is another masterly carved cameo. A very desirable collectors piece, rare and museum quality cameo.
