So AMAZING and GORGEOUS describes this RARE VICTORIAN HAND PAINTED BLUE EYED PORCELAIN ANGELS CAMEO! The Victorian Period (1837-1901) was when QUEEN VICTORIA was the RULER of GREAT BRITAIN. This was a Period of Time for Great Britain of Prosperity.These Lovely Angels look like they could be Twins or Sisters, but maybe this is how all Angels look in HEAVEN. The Eyes in these Angels are especially Nicely Done, each has a Focus on something different so that each look is completely different from the other. Even though this is an OLD PIECE the Colors are still Bright and Beautiful. The Tops of the Angels Wings are Tinged with Gold and the very Fine Detail of the Feathers are Painted in each Wing. I Love how the Artist blurred the Clouds flowing the Color of the Darker Clouds into the Angels Bodies. I don't know the Origin of this CAMEO but my best guess is that it was painted in Italy, Italy has always had the most Talented Artisans. Or perhaps it was painted in LIMOGE, FRANCE also known for its Lovely Painted Porcelains. The Brooch has a very Pretty Gold Tone Metal Frame, however I have no idea what the Metal Content of this Frame is since it has no Markings. There is Light Age related Wear to the finish of the Frame which I have shown in the last 2 close up Photos. The Frame has a Unique Decorative Fleur Piece at the Center Top of the Frame, so maybe this gives us a hint that this Brooch does indeed come from FRANCE. The Frame is in Excellent Condition and the CAMEO is set securely in the Frame without any movement. The CAMEO is as well in Excellent Condition with only some very minor Paint Loss, and a Small Chip in the Back Area Porcelain at one Edge but this does not show in the Front of the Cameo and does also not affect how it fits in the Frame in any way. These details in no way take away from the Beauty of this CAMEO. I have left the Brooch Pin on the Brooch, I thought I would let the buyer decide if they wanted it off. I wanted to make a really Special Necklace for this CAMEO so I decided to make a Triple Strand using new 14k Gold Filled Wire with Beautiful Cultured Baroque Kasumi Pearl Necklace for the CAMEO. The Cultured Kasumi Pearls I chose are Triple AAA Quality and have a Mostly Smooth Very Slight Wrinkly Texture to them that Kasumi Pearls are Famous for. This TEXTURE is Naturally occurring as part of the Pearls growth pattern and not a Flaw in the Pearls. The LUSTRE in these Pearls is Really Beautiful as you can see in the Photos. The Color of the Pearls is CREAM. If you look closely at the 6TH PHOTO of the Necklace laying on a Sterling Silver Tray the Very Sleight Hint of Pink LUSTRE which is more obvious to see than in the other Photos. If you look at the CREAM COLOR of the PEARLS compared to the CREAM COLOR of the MANNEQUIN CLOTH BACKGROUND the NECKLACE hangs on this will give you an accurate idea of the PEARL COLOR. The Pearls Size are 10.5mm to 11.5mm. I have added a 11.5mm Matching Baroque Kasumi Pearl Drop to the bottom of the CAMEO. The Inside Chain length is 16,1/2 inches long, the Middle Chain is 17,1/2 inches long. The approximate total Necklace length with the Cultured Pearl Drop is 2 hairs short of 24 inches long. The Clasp for the Necklace is a Darken Brass 3 Strand Clasp. The Necklace is Very Easy to put On and Off and Comfortable to wear. Please let me know if you would prefer the Brooch Pin removed from the CAMEO, I normally do this but decided to leave this decision to the buyer. Although the 14k Gold Filled Wire, Jump Rings in the Cultured Pearl Necklace are not stamped for this these Connectors do test as 14k Gold Filled items. The Necklace can be customized to the buyers preference. I offer GENEROUS LAYAWAY TERMS to my buyers. If you LOVE collecting CAMEOS you will LOVE this STUNNING NECKLACE!
