A small, hand painted portrait of a lovely, young woman is set in the center of this large, oval shaped, gold colored metal brooch. Exquisitely crafted, this beautiful piece has applied, metal flowers and leaves around the frame, and around the portrait. It's large, measuring 2&3/4 inches long, by 2 inches wide. The inset portrait measure just 3/4 inch long, by 1/2 inch wide. It has a mark on the back. Try as I may, I can't be sure what it is. It looks like, "TS", or, "IS", or, "16". No marks to indicate metal content. There is a simple, c clasp on the back that is secure as long as it's attached to enough fabric to hold it in place. Please note that the photos are ENLARGED to show detail, and refer to the measurements in the description.
