Cameo

Cased Forms of glass, usually with an opaque white over a colour, in which the outer colour is carved to leave a translucent white relief design or figure in contrast against the layer or the layers of base colour.


The Portland Vase is probably the best known piece of ancient cameo glass but the technique has been revived in various places over the centuries.
