Catalogue Note

The Pichler family of gem engravers was founded by Johann Anton, called Antonio, (1697-1779) who settled in Rome in 1743. He was followed in business by his sons Giovanni (1743-91), Giuseppe (1770-1819) and Luigi (1773-1854). The Pichler family instituted the practice of signing their gems to prevent them from being mistaken for ancient carvings. Cameos and intaglios by Pichler rarely appear on the market and are highly sought after by collectors.
