This lovely hand painted Georgian portrait is elaborately embellished in raised enameled gilt and custom mounted in a later Yellow Sapphire set beautifully detailed silver and 18K yellow gold frame.
The finished pendant hangs 1.5" long and measures .75" wide. The chain is a later addition well matched for color. It is 18K and 18" in length.
CONDITION: Excellent with no losses or replacements to note (other than the chain, which is a later addition.) The portrait is backed with a darkened silver plaque. 32 Yellow Sapphires are natural 1.37mm-1.50mm (by gauge & formula) with a total carat weight of 1.60 carats. The pendant weighs 7 grams (10.1 grams including the chain.) Unsigned. As this piece was a marriage with the hand crafted mount being after the painting, I cannot accurately date it except to say the chain is modern.
An estate piece, acquired with another similar piece we will list next week. The appraisal that came with this was dated for the estate in 2006 with a value of $4800 Cdn.
