Cameo Masterpiece

This Regency tiara comb, c. 1820, has seven oval shell cameos, which portray winged characters in mythical scenes. The cameos are surrounded by small beads and mounted in an intricate open-work design. Sotheby’s estimates its value at between 4,000 to 6,000 GBP. A magnificent piece, indeed.
