A very charming late Victorian hand painted transfer portrait brooch.
Features one of the cherub puttis, after the beloved 16th century oil painting 'Sistine Madonna' by Raphael Sanzio.
Mounted in a rope twist base metal frame; the back of the porcelain is impressed with the number 29.
Measurements: 2" by 1 5/8".
In good antique condition; the porcelain is particularly good with no loss of detail; the base frame is darkened with age (left uncleaned); the hinge is original but the pin is an antique makeshift replacement; period 'c' catch has old solder under it.
A delightful item in wear or on display.
