Intaglios were typically small plaster stamps with reliefs carved into them. These reliefs often depicted scenes from Greek or Roman mythology, or individuals or scenes from history. They were marketed in Italy during the 18thand 19thcenturies as souvenirs for wealthy travelers. The small plaster medallions were mounted into bookswith travel notes corresponding to each one. Intaglios have simply beautiful mystique about them and everyone inquires about the adventure that resulted in the buying or obtaining that stamp. Nowadays intaglios are highly collectible and it is almost impossible to find original ones.Fortunately the new intaglios are made from the same old molds, making the molds collectibles as well.
