Presented here in its original box is a magnificent cameo depicting Pope Pius X. On the cover of the leather covered box the arms of the pope are printed in gold and in the inside, also printed in gold it bears the name of the Roman jeweller N.Calabresi.

Details:

Period: ca. 1910

Condition: excellent condition

Country of origin: Although it does not carry any legible control marks we believe this to be of Italian origin.

Theme: Pope Pius X

Material: 18K yellow gold

Technique: Cameo

This jewel features a filigree decoration, which is in fact thin golden wire twisted into refined motifs, in this case elegant little balls. You can also notice the use of granulation on this piece. Granulation is a technique where the goldsmith uses very small balls (granules) of metal, which are not soldered to the piece but welded. Both techniques demand very high skills and precision from the maker.

Dimensions: 5.30 cm (2.09 inch) x 4.50 cm (1.77 inch)

Couldn't resist to thumbs up this! Thankfully I've only lost less than $100 in my time.
