Cameo Moulds

Recommended Posts

Empirex

So cameo moulds are not quite my field of expertise so thought maybe folks here might be able to help out a little in terms of worth.

 

Got the following 126 piece set from around the 1850's. I believe they are made out of a fine plaster of Paris. The dark colouring on some of the moulds is just dust build-up.

As you can see on the underside of the lid, the sculpture's name is Antoine Odelli.

Thank you, much appreciated!

Apparently my search engine abilities are sorely lacking as I spent hours searching for items relating to Antoine Odelli and only came up with third party references. Go figure :hm:

 

I think they are something called "Intaglios".

 

Things That Inspire: Favorite Design Element: Framed Intaglios

 

From what I understand a Cameo would a piece that has the carving / image protruding; while an Intaglio creates an impression, or indent, in the mould.

Your not the only one that happens to. Then search again a few hours later and ... voilà there it is :grin:

Ok, from the pictures I looked at, that does make sense.

 

The Robert Schreuder Link should give some indication of the value.

 

Good luck.
