This Cameo is absolutely stunning and the craftsmanship is impeccable the bust on this Cameo is that of Apollo Belvedere. Apollo is the son on Zeus and Leto and this bust is copied from the statue in the Vatican. I can see no visible markings anywhere on this cameo. There is a very very similar one in the Martin Weil Collection 1940 at the British Museum carved by Luigi Sandili.

1 inch wide and 1 1/2 inches long. Rollover hinge that works beautifully. This Cameo has been in my family since 1908 when my great grandmother received it as a gift when she adopted my grandmother. I have had it for 35 years and it just sits in a drawer. Its needs to be worn and loved.
