This list relates to a set of plaster, gilt edged cameos by an unknown maker which are after Bertel Thorvaldsen, one of the most important European representatives of Neo-Classicist sculptural art. The set of cameos are framed and mounted behind glass but it appears they originally were contained in albums. They belonged to Peter and Helen Wilson.
