A superb quality, 18th century, three colour jasperware cameo. This piece is marked 'WEDGWOOD' and it is also impressed with a large  '&' which would be the workman's mark. It dates from c.1790. The design shows cupids with musical instruments and weapons. The detail in the relief is very fine.The relief is in white jasper, against a black background, with a green border. The rim of the cameo is lapidary polished which is a process that Wedgwood ceased using at the end of the 18th century. There are a few very tiny chips to the reverse of the cameo but they are not visible on the face.
