10 K Gold Victorian Hand-Painted Portrait Jewelry
A beautiful turn-of-the-century, oval, hand-painted portrait on porcelaine, with a 10K rose gold and white gold filigree border. In the days before photography, a hand-painted portrait miniature was a desirable keepsake or love token.The portraits were worn by both men and women. This lovely piece of jewelry can hang as a pendent, worn with a necklace or it can be used as a brooch and worn on clothing. The loop to make it a pendent folds in so when worn as a brooch this piece is not longer visible. The skilled work in the construction of this lovely piece of jewelry is what makes it stand out. The floral details of the filigree band with the white relief flowers on the young girl's shirt are nice touches that accentuate the realistic aspect of this painted portrait- with a remarkable photographic quality. The brooch and other hardware are in perfect working condition. The oval measures 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches. Portrait jewelry is a classic favorite, a personality captured in time, an enchanting accessory.
