Merger proposal[edit]

This article discusses essentially the same process (the cutting and carving of gemstones) as the much older article Lapidary, but this article seems somewhat better referenced. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:35, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose I've renamed the other Engraved gem and they cover related but different subjects in different ways. I think they nowe different enough to remove the merge tag. Johnbod (talk) 15:06, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Well-constructed Wikipedia articles nest within one another. The article Lapidary, if written well, encloses sub-articles such as this one, Tumble finishing and Diamond cutting, to give two parallel example. This article should be represented in concise summary at Lapidary, with the usual hatnote.--Wetman (talk) 14:43, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

National collections[edit]

I mentioned Paris, London and Vienna. Should the Hermitage Museum be included as on a par?--Wetman (talk) 14:43, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Probably, although I have no informed knowledge. They have the Gonzaga cameo & the Orleans collection, which was apparently famous - this might tell us. I'd overlooked this source, excellent as always, which certainly suggests so. They are in the text already. Johnbod (talk) 15:11, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Sistine ceiling[edit]

Michelangelo derived two of the seated ignudi from engraved gems, but I couldn't tell you where I read that — before any of yez were born, probably.--Wetman (talk) 09:12, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Don't count on that! Also Donatello & plenty of others. Haskell might have something. At least we have a half-way decent explanation of the form up. I've set up Category:Engraved gem artists for various people previously made to seem gemcutters in the modern sense. Johnbod (talk) 13:43, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm still in awe at how quickly you shape up these big subjects that still seem to form lacunae at Wikipedia, Johnbod. That Grove's article does set a high standard.--Wetman (talk) 19:14, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Possibly it's just as well I didn't come across the vast Beazley Archive site until the thing had taken shape. I relish the semi-greengrocer's apostrophe here. Johnbod (talk) 21:14, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
