Beautiful 1920s miniature painting of a lady made into a brooch.

Brooch with a miniature hand painted portrait of a lady in Regency style dress, covered with bevelled glass, in an anitique gold tone (most likely gold plated), and hung from a bow brooch.

On the back it's inscribed TLM Made in England referring to Thomas L Mott, its Birmigham based makers. The paintresses from this factory used paintbrushes with only one or two fine hairs to carry out their art. The resulting portraits are superb in their detail - from the ruffles in the frock to the tiny facial features. The miniature portaits were made from late 1800s to the 1950s and the design and style of this one dates from around the 1920s.

The brooch is in excellent antique condition. The brooch hangs at a total length of just over 4cm (1.57 inches) and the bow part measures about 2.5 cm (1 inch) across.

Comes gift boxed.

I post the very next day after purchase.
