These wonderful filigree pieces are becoming harder and harder to find. Although unsigned, this is definitely Hobé.
Delicate filigree work surrounds the glass covered delicately hand-painted portrait of an elegant lady of a bygone era.
All stones are dogtoothed bezel set. All stones are original and are gorgeous in colour.
The portrait does not lie flat against the glass and most likely never has, as you can’t get into it to straighten it. It is in excellent condition otherwise.
Patent 150855 was filed on June 13, 1947 and granted Sept. 7, 1948. Circa 1947. 2” by 2 ½”.
All our jewelry is pre-owned and the condition is very good to excellent with no evidence of misuse unless stated.
