Hand Painted Edwardian Porcelain Blue Forget Me Not Brooch in Sterling Silver Setting

Hand painted brooches were popular in the late 1800's through about 1930. Cultured ladies took china painting lessons and made these keepsakes for friends and family. Messages were expressed using "The Language of Flowers", in this case the blue "forget me not" flower, which need no translation.

The flowers are painted on mauve and cream colored background. The painting is in excellent condition with some wear to the painted gold border. The brooch is 1 3/8" x 1 1/4" (34mm x 28mm).

The setting is sterling silver with a rolling ring safety clasp. The clasp and setting style date this to about 1918 - 1920. The silver has not been polished and shows no wear or damage. Marked sterling on the reverse.
