Large Round Pastoral Shell Cameo Signed
This masterfully carved shell cameo is set in 14K yellow gold. The scene depicts young lovers and is inspired by Boucher's 18c. pastoral Shepherd and Shepherdess. The back is signed G. Noto, but is more likely carved by one of Giovanni Noto's advanced students. Giovanni Noto held the position of artistic director of APA Studios in Torre Del Greco from 1947 until his death in 1985. He was called Michelangelo's Chisel for his considerable artistic talent as a master carver.
The cameo is round and measures two inches in diameter. It is fitted with a pin stem and roll over clasp and a fold over pendant bale. Circa 1960s.
