A rare, and superb quality, 18th century, four colour jasperware cameo. This piece is marked 'WEDGWOOD' and it is also impressed with a large letter 'V' 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 lilac background, with a blue border and a green rim. The rim of the cameo is lapidary polished which is a process that Wedgwood ceased using at the end of the 18th century. It is in excellent condition. 
Price includes postage within the U.K. Western  Europe and the U.S.A.
