Cameo cut by Pio Siotto of Rome and set in gold by the London jeweler George Blogg & Co., inscribed on verso to Mary S. Anthony. Siotto worked from a photograph of Susan B. Anthony taken in March 1883 by G. Borelli in Rome, and from life, at sittings in his studio. Anthony, who gave a second cameo to Jane Spofford, pronounced the work "quite good I think."

Description from volume 4 of The Selected letters of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, edited by Ann D. Gordon. (New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 2006).
