Beautiful Antique Miniature Hand Painted Portrait Saint Fabiola Set Within an Oval 800 Silver Frame Pin Pendant. I believe that these beautiful hand painted portrait combination pendant, pin/brooch's were made for the European toursit population. This one is most likely Italian or German and an early addition as to the C clasp on the back. The silver encasement displays a beautiful hand painted rendition of Saint Fabiola. Very graceful and pretty. The frame compliments the portrait very well with scrolling filigree silver design and a nice bail at the top. The back of the pendant also has a standard pin back so it can be worn as a brooch. As seen in the one photo I have two of St. Fabiola's and a Virgin Mary in the shop. This one is for the larger one of the two.

The back of the pendant is marked 800 for silver content. The pin pendant measures 2" high by 1 3/8" wide. The pin pendant and painting both appear to be in good condition. Normal wear from age as expected. Nice aged patina. Truly a remarkable piece of wearable art!

Below Read About Saint Fabiola and the Artist who originally painter her.

Born to the Roman patrician class. Divorced from her first marriage after being abused by her adulterous husband. Widowed in second marriage. Friend of Saint Jerome, Saint Paula of Rome, and Saint Pammachius. Founded the first hospital in the west. Built a hospice in Porto Romano for the area poor and for sick pilgrims. After doing penance for her divorce, she re-entered communion with the Church by dispensation of Pope Saint Siricius. Pilgrim to the Holy Lands in 394 where she worked in a hospice in Bethlehem. Wanted to live as a hermit in Jerusalem, but never managed it. Saint Jerome wrote of her life. She is the patron saint for difficult marriages, divorced people, victims of abuse, victims of adultery, victims of unfaithfulness and widows.

About The Portrait: Jean-Jacques Henner painted his portrait of Fabiola (in a classical Roman profile) in 1885; this idealized rendition of the saint was lost in 1912. The image was copied by artists around the globe over the last century, in 2009 Francis Alÿs composed a traveling exhibition of over 300 of these copies. The exhibit first ran at the Hispanic Society of America in New York City, then the LACMA in Los Angeles, with the exhibition going to London at the National Portrait Gallery from May to September 2009
