This hand painted Russian brooch has the portrait of a beautiful woman in Fedoskino work on Mother of Pearl. It measures 2 inches X 1-1/2 inch.
It is exquisite. Ever so slightly domed, iridescent Mother of Pearl has a gorgeous red headed aristocratic woman on the front. She has "pearls" in her hair. There is lace and fur around her bodice. Features are so delicate.
There is an artist's signature at the bottom which I cannot read.
The piece is set in silver tone metal with a twisted rope frame. The pin mechanism is glued firmly to the back.
This is wonderful. There is a razor thin line at the bottom that I think is in the surface coating. Some glue shows around the pin back.
