Seems to be a cameo of an 18th century gentleman, on canvas of wax in excellent shape with a beautiful maple frame.

Framed cameo of Thomas Jefferson - probably jasper. Some are carved from wood.

I believe it is a shadow box pucture containing a cameo of Mozart.

This looks like a type of cameo. It's a relief, in profile, of an 18th century gentleman, on fabric, in a birds-eye maple frame. I'm not sure what the relief is made of. It looks like plastic.
