9780764329944: Cameos: Classical to Costume

This book is the first of its kind and the result of a labor of love by the authors, who researched the history of cameos and took over 500 color photographs of cameo jewelry. Over 1400 examples of cameo jewelry are depicted, representing a time span from the 1700s to the present. Subjects covered include mythological motifs of classical gods and goddesses, religious subjects and scenes, and the ever-present anonymous woman. A history of the cameo is provided, followed by individual chapters covering each of the materials used to make cameos, including amber, amethyst, glass, jasper ware, lava, mother-of-pearl, opal, plastics, quartz, shell, topaz, and Wedgwood. The beautiful, detailed photographs show the unique artistry and design of the cameos and their settings. This extensive book and price guide will appeal to all who appreciates the cameo's timeless appeal.

About the Author:

Monica Lynn Clements is a teacher, writer, and antiques dealer specializing in rare books. Patricia Rosser Clements is a longtime antiques collector whose other interests include art, design and photography.

From Library Journal:

Cameos were originally carved out of single multilayered stones, but since the 18th-century "classical" period, lava, shell, glass, plastics, and other materials have been used. This general history is very briefly told in Cameos, which at its best is a visual feast for enthusiasts of this type of jewelry. Over 1400 pieces are pictured in full color, though occasionally the illustrations are unclear owing to the small size of the items or shadows on detail. Accompanying captions state materials, dates, sizes, and prices. Information is gleaned from antique dealers and collectors?presumably acquaintances of the authors, who are also dealers?but not from curators. Readers are thus advised to consult experts, refer to other publications, and examine actual pieces to gain familiarity with variations in quality and authenticity. This book can offer a broad first exposure to acquaint beginning collectors of cameos, but, given its price, it is best suited to large public libraries.?Therese Duzinkiewicz Baker, Western Kentucky Univ.
