She's got lace cascading down her hair and a decollete neckline...all to enhance her natural beauty.
This old hand-painted miniature portrait pin is set in 800 silver filigree. We're not sure what this is painted on...it might be porcelain or some other material that was used back them. The back has a cloth backing. The pin has a tube closure and can also be worn as a pendant...there's a filigree loop for a chain.
The pin measures 1 1/2 inches across. There's a signature in red. Through a magnifier, we see a bit of age soil under the glass...not sure if/how glass can be removed for cleaning. It's not a distraction as it just blends into the background. Overall, a fine miniature artwork.
