    This is the FINEST MUSEUM QUALITY CARVED CAMEO OF MERCURY I HAVE EVER SEEN.IT is lava set in at least 10 kt gold.Not marked but tested.A pendant only at 1 7/8 by 2 1/8. Carved in high relief.On the back it says Mercury 10 looks like Mayo narian Bronyo-Bronzo???? The
    subject is based on a statue by the Greek sculptor Lysippos.
    There is a bronze statue of Mercury called "mercurio a riposo"
    (Mercury at rest) in Naples. That's where the carver must have
    seen it, The second line is "museo Nazionale" or National
    Museum, which is where you will find the statue of Mercury
    resting on Mount Ida
    There are little wings in his feet His muscles are perfect and the head is just right.From around 1860-80.A Grand Tour item.

      I can truthfully say that I have never seen a cameo of this quality. 3 dimensional reliefs are rare & I don't even seriously follow this market. Beautiful.

      This is extraordinary. Very very special.
