Georgian Pendant Portrait Under Glass Metal Casing Signed
Encased in this rather ornate metal pendant, is this Georgian Hand Painted Portrait of a Woman. I was told it was from about 1830-40's.
There is a large "H" signed on the side of the portrait. Maybe not "Fine" Antique jewelry but it is antique. She looks better from afar, from a foot away she is prettier. I'm not sure who this queen or person of royalty was, but I have seen her in other portraits from that time. Can anyone give some insight?
The metal is thicker than tin, but I don't know what it is and I haven't tried to clean it. The back has a rather copper tint to the metal. Over 50% Off!
I love old jewelry, if nothing else to see what it has evolved into. I like this piece because it has a historical value to it with the portrait of a lady of so long ago.
The back part is made like a good frame with 8 bent pieces of metal to keep the portrait in place.
There is glass over the portrait. The pendant hangs 2 1/4" long. Pretty and in great shape. It really looks MUCH better when seeing her from a from a foot away and not magnified! Still, it amazes me that anyone could paint such small portraits.
I love the hair styles on these ladies of long ago!
