does anyone have any books with this type of cameo glass in please? Does the Langhammer book have any in if anyone has it?
I've found three engraved cameo pieces dating to 1845/50 ish and with the overlay decoration, but none have three layers, only two, being the blue cut to clear with the cameo engraving. One was on red. The scrolls decoration on the pieces seem very similar to this. But two were signed and this is not.
I;'m working on the premise this piece probably dates to around this period and is not a later c 1890 or even 1915 type piece.
I've added a cropped close up of the cameo.
Interestingly acid etched cameo engraving was used in Bohemia mid 19th century. I'd always assumed this was a later technique starting around 1890 ish or at least, the latter part of the century.
I'm going to send it to the V&A and ask for some help as well.
thanks for looking
