Two Antique Italian Renaissance Style Cameo Portraits, Italy circa 1865

A pair of antique Italian Renaissance style cameo portraits from Italy circa 1865 featuring the bust of a lady and a gentleman rendered in bronze and inset into a square frame. Please notice that these two pieces were always meant to be seen as a pair as the figures face each other. They are dressed in the finest fashions of the day in order to display their position in society. They were, most likely, a married couple and these were presented as a gift to relations. The round portraits are set into a square frame of ebonized wood that is adorned with pierced metal mounts in each corner. This type of portrait was reserved for the upper classes because of the expensive materials used in their creation.
