Archaeological-Style Necklace with Intaglios

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The Castellani workshop was famous for its copies of ancient jewelry, and this necklace has been attributed Giacinto Melillo, one of Alessandro Castellani's apprentices and protégés (another similar necklace in the Walters collection, 57.1530, bears his mark on the clasp). In 1865, he took over Castellani's workshop in Naples, which Henry Walters visited in 1903.
