Antique cameo broach

by Cheryl Christy Seydel
(Skippack, PA, USA)

My great grandfather, Eugene Albert Mollier, of Paris, France - an artist, musician and lapidary, a graduate of the Paris Conservatory of Art and Music, came to American at the turn of the 20th century. We have many priceless broaches, pins, and rings made by his hand. He also made a mother of pearl carving of a Pope in Philadelphia and given to him as a gift. We have a pre-cut of the Pope's bust. We are proud to have such an artistic family history. My 38 year old son is now a talented artist and I've given him the antique metal box containing the carving tools and samples from his great-great grandfather. Thank you.
