Hand Painted Opaline Brooch Curl Compartment Mid 19th Century

Delightful brooch made of silver and gold plated (not marked, but tested). Dated about 1840.

Blue opaline plaque decorated with a hand painted flower bouquet, a very fine enamel painting work. The opaline plaque has lovely mounts with fine pearled borders and star like ornaments.

The back side contains a photograph or hair curl compartment.

The condition is very good, no cracks or repaired. The opaline plaque has a fine depression on the edge, this insignificant imperfect is hard to see and comes doubtless from the fabrication.

The brooch measures 1.6 inches in height and 1.2 inches in width.
