  • Vintage from the 19th century
  • Length: 2 3/8 Inches; Width: 1 5/8 Inches
  • Materials: sterling silver, marcasites, paint, bone
  • Style: Victorian

Antique Victorian French hand painted brooch and pendant featuring an intricate marcasite studded silver filigree frame. The oval painting appears to be painted on a thin piece of bone and features a young aristocratic looking 18th century woman wearing ermine fur trim on her gown, although the paint has worn off in several places. The back of the brooch is equally lovely with an engraved floral design. It is marked, "Made in France."

The center piece can be removed by popping out the silver frame. The inside of the frame is marked "298." It is not marked for it's silver content but tested as at least sterling silver.

The silver frame and brooch are in very good condition with all of the marcasites intact. The brooch clasp and hinge appear to have been soldered onto the back at some point, probably to replace an older clasp. The pendant loop may also have been added at some as some solder is visible.

A coordinating pair of earrings that were found with this brooch are shown in the last 2 photos and are also available for sale separately at the following listing:

Smaller than I thought they'd be, but absolutely beautiful. They seem well made and have a gorgeous light blue color. Can't wait for social events to become a thing again so I can wear them somewhere!
