Antique Cameos Overview

Most people associate antique cameos with jewellery but they can also be found in other forms. Antique cameos can be found in ceramics, antique seals and other art forms. Cameos are a miniature, sculptural work of art, depicting portraits and scenes of the time. A cameo is a carving which stands out from its background. If the carving is carved into the surface it is known as an Intaglio. This is usually found in antique seals.
