  • Description
    Paoletti Impronte, ‘Mussei Diversi’, Rome c1800.
    Code: 10275

    Original nineteenth century plaster cameo seals.

    These ‘Grand Tour’ souvenirs were brought home by wealthy European travellers. Rome was the ultimate destination and a tour of the treasures contained in its many museums complemented a young man’s education. Collecting boxes and faux bindings containing plaster casts of ancient gems was a fashionable pastime and a valuable ‘aide memoir’ of the mythologies, gods and historical events depicted on the delicate cameos.

    Presented in hand-gilded shadow box frames, lined with fine hand-made english marbled paper.

    Framed size: 134mm x 134mm (5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches)
