Okay, so. This cameo brooch is almost certainly Italian, and almost certainly from the 1800s. Unfortunately, I did a terrible thing and apparently didn’t save the info that goes with it. And there is no way to do an image analysis search because I didn’t grab it online. :| *infinite facepalm* So if anyone has an artist or source for this cameo, please feel free to add it. I had been saving it for the last 1800s Week, but alas, my digging turned up nothing. It is, however, remarkable, and I still wanted to put it out there.
