I think the synopsis listed does a great job describing this book accurately. As an avid vintage jewelry collector and reseller, I found it necessary to improve my knowledge about cameos. This is a great book if you are interested in the history of cameos and the craftsmanship involved. I recommend this book to any antique jewelry dealer who is interested in determining the true worth of their cameo pieces. I especially appreciated the cameo dating techniques, and determining what the cameo was visually depicting.
