    Welcome to my estate cameo collection! I like to say that I became interested in cameos about five years ago, though “obsessed with” would be more honest. I purchased some, some were gifts, and all have special stories attached to them. While I love the examples pictured here, this collection is always growing, and I look forward to sharing future additions. Thank you for looking!

      What a fabulous cameo collection, you have some real beauties, I esp love the habille (pendant) type and that large square cut on lower rt. side which is like the one my great grandmother had

      Newfld, thank you very much! Habille cameos are among my personal favorites, after floral and scenic pieces. It is so nice that you have a special family memory attached to cameos. Do you have her piece?

      Wow a fantastic collection !
    4. FromTheVanityVintage FromTheVanityVintage, 4 months ago
      Manikin, thank you for your kind words! I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      You're welcome FromTheVanity, I do have my family cameo but since moving it's still packed away somewhere (I've seen it but of course forgot exactly where). It was bought for my great GM by her husband when they married in the 1920s, an Italian shell habille cameo which has the white gold filigree frame like your large square one, but the lady resembles your habille one right next to that one with the diamond habille necklace. I received it as a gift from her daughter (my GM) when I was a teenager as I was the only girl, it's always been very precious to me. Think of the history behind all of yours, they are amazing!

      Newfld, how wonderful that you are able to trace an antique’s origins right back to its roots! That is quite special and rare, and, if you are able to locate it in the future, I’d love to see! Thank you for sharing. It was nice to travel along the journey with you for a moment. :)

      Wow great grouping of cameo, I have too, some I like more, top left the small Filigree box with the small cameo and The Harp player are my preferred, but like to be honest, they all Gorgeous.

      These lovelies deserve posts individually.. that’s how special they are! ( I know, that’s a lot of posts but we would be able to see each one better, including the backs!) Just a thought. A favorite? I’m not sure yet, still looking! Beautiful collection! Thank you so much again for sharing such treasures!
