This intaglio is set in an 18 karat gold ring.

A beautiful young woman is playing a lyre, the instrument of the god Apollo. Her left knee is bent as she leans against a pillar for support. The folds of her dress fall seductively around her, leaving a shoulder and breast bare. A small figure on top of the pillar seems to be dancing to the music, and nearly about to fall off! Such gentle and charming scenes from ancient life were particularly popular with aristocrats of the 18th century, who employed the finest engravers to create intaglios worthy of an emperor.
