Description

Large two layered intaglio of Julius Caesar. The gold mount is same age as the intaglio ca. 1760-70. The second half of the eighteenth century saw the Grand Tour reach its crescendo, by this time it was difficult to find “original Roman” artifacts to take home as souvenirs so the Roman jewellers of the age have began to fill the need and supply mementos of Antiquity. Rome of 1760 had over a hundred gem carvers and the quality of carving was the very best in Europe at the time.

Size of the bezel 28×21 mm Ring size “L” =US “6”
