J-3350 Italian Victorian Portrait Brooch Hand Painted Porcelain
Offered is a hand painted brooch from the mid-Victorian era c.1880. Because of the pin construction, I believe this was more like c.1900. This brooch is the profile of a woman with large, black floppy hat and plume. The setting is yellow gold tone with a twisted rope frame and wire cable around the bezel set portrait. Incredible detail to the painting, no wear to the image or setting. There are a few small spots of wear to the plating on the back where it is signed Italy. Previous repairs were made to secure the pin stem many years ago.

Condition: Very Good
Size: 1-1/4 x 1-5/8
