Antique Victorian Lady Original Portrait Painting Brooch Pin Pendant Turquoise:
Exquisite miniature painting of a Renaissance upper class young lady enclosed within a clear cased bezel. The detail and artistry are superb with almost no wear to the paint. She is presented in a silver filligree surround studded with round Persian turquoise stones. She is a fair skinned pretty redhead with a fancy updo. I can see the paint strokes but no signature. The back has a cartouche with 800 in two places indicating European silver. I am certain the piece originated in Italy approx a hundred years ago. Probably a Grand Tour piece. Absolutely lovely!
Measures 1.5” tall.
Good working pin back and bale for your necklace.
Shipped with USPS First Class Package.
