    I don't understand why auction houses don't clean the cameos before taking pictures. It isn't difficult. Even just wiping off the dust would be helpful. Some are so dirty.

    komokwa The Truth is out there...!

    they display in the condition they were presented.....

    if u were to ask them to clean the items they receive for auction.....maybe they would in this case......

    but one can't expect them to alter the condition of what they offer.....on their own !

    Some gentleman cameos for Bronwen's Pinterest board. Bronwen, sorry I don't have links to all of them them, I just did a screen capture as I went along. I will do so in future.

    You guys will have to come & tie me to my chair & force me to process this parade of gentlemen. Personally, I'm rather taken with this guy:


    Not everyone can wear a nose like that. Truly aquiline.

    I have more gentlemen to come, but need time to post them. This guy sold for $381 on eBay today. Not my favorite and didn't have a signature. Pretty good price. I like the guy with the hook nose much better.

    These 3 are just awesome. They are so detailed. My fave is the forked beard man. I looked at them closely and am wondering if they may be molded, not carved? There seem to be a few "bubbles" in the white matrix but they could be artifacts of the photos. There is also a chip on the lapel of man #2 that reminds me of a glass chip. But then the detail is so great and the first two have the "halo" around the beard area. I would love to see them in person.

    The way the left tip of his mustache casts a shadow makes me think he is not glass.

    So, I was going through a bunch of my cameos to see if I could pack them up differently (answer turned out to be no) & trying to put the signed ones together by author. I thought I had 5 cameos by Filippo Tignani, so was very surprised to find a sixth that I did not remember at all.

    She's shell, not the more coveted hardstone, but I find her very compelling.

    Thank you. I have to paw through stuff from time to time or I forget what I have. Only a fraction are on display. Those I like to "visit" at odd moments for a dose of enjoyment.

    Not a keen expert as you are, I've not seen a Louet signature before my lady portrait, and then another!
    No, I'm not considering buying the gentleman, feel free to make an offer.
    I can do this for you and buy it to save on the shipping and VAT, then send it to you:)

    I was not going to buy it but wonder if @PepperAnna might have? I'll be content with collecting the photos for my records. It's time I left (most) interesting things for others to acquire.

    Somebody tagged and bagged him. 'Twas not me; I have a few Czech glass cameos and one or two lavas, but nothing particularly good.

    That's a nice cameo-- I love the daisy in her hair. Have you had her for a long time?
