James Tassie Cabinet
James Tassie (1735-1799) was a Scottish gem-engraver. The Tassie collection comprises casts of early (basically antique) and modern cameos and intaglios from European museums and more than 200 private collections. N. Marchant, A. Pichler and his sons, brothers Browns, E. Burch and others were artists of engraved gems.
About 12500 casts are stored in the collection of the Coins and Medals Department.
