A stunning late 19th century example, this delicate portrait exhibits superb carving in the Neo-Gothic manner. The sitter’s dress is evocative of thirteenth century high gothic fashion and her flowing veil and open neckline harken to bygone fashion, while maintaining the demure subverted gaze that 19th century cameos are famous for. A beautiful ring with a rich, visual history. We are excited to bring this sweet example to market.
