    Another lucky French find...

    Hardstone "en habillé " (wearing jewels) blackamoor cameos, dating around 1860, are very rare and sought after!

    This one is costume jewelry from same era, it is made in two pieces of glass: the head is finely molded in black glass glued on white glass slab as background.
    Her jewels are set with tiny red pastes.

    She was missing her hair net and earring...

    Kyratized with twisted silver wire, colored with yellow permanent marker, cut lengths glued in the grooves with minute superglue droplets applied with a toothpick.

    Now worn on an antique festoon pearl necklace :-D

      Judy, right, so true looking it can pass for gold and hardstone :-)
      Antique so called costume jewelry was made like precious metal pieces and were of outstanding and durable look quality.
      Thank you for loving my lady and her kyratised look :-D

      Oh, Ms.Crystalship, that's a big compliment, thank you! I gave Fabian de Montjoye's one another look... she has a kind of frowning attitude when mine has a quiet smile :-))
      Sure, I stick to my pieces and LOVE them all as much as doing my restorations on some!

      Lentilka, thanks a lot! Each time I get a wounded piece I'm thrilled to work on it, and greatly appreciate your so kind comment! Glad you enjoyed this one too :-D
