Beautiful cameo of a woman / goddess from the ancient world in high relief. The piece is marked on the side Alexander Backer Co with the copyright symbol. There is also a sticker on the back marked ABCO, Hand Painted, Made in USA.

This 3 dimensional oval wall plaque measures 13 x 11 inches overall. The woman figure is 6 inches tall by 4 3/4 inches with her relief rising more than 2 inches from the background.

The frame portion is black with gold details, the cameo is creamy ivory white with a crown of gold in her wavy hair and light gold highlights to add depth and shadow to her robes. The details on this piece are beautiful. There is a built in hanger on the back to which I added a vintage piece of 1 1/2 inch wide black ribbon to hang in the Victorian style with a bow at the top.

This is a mid century piece from the 1950's and as such does show it's age in the form of a large chip near the floral detail (close up in last picture) so it basically blends in and adds shabby charm.
