A truly gorgeous, hand painted portrait miniature of a young girl, mounted within a 1920's French silver plated locket pendant.
The locket case is very large and oval in shape, silver plated, with the name PRUNELLA hand engraved to the front cartouche.
As is typical with French lockets of the period, when released from the bottom catch, the front case slides sideways to reveal the miniature (the interior of this is base metal as shown in penultimate image).
The girl we know is called Prunella. Her name is after all engraved on the front of the case.
Prunella is beautifully depicted in watercolour, with her deep blue eyes, rosy cheeks and 1920's bobbed blonde hair .
The silver plated outer case is chased on both sides with a floral outer border; the front cartouche being reserved for the engraved name PRUNELLA.
In good vintage condition.
Measurements: 3.5" by 1.75" (including bail & jump ring).
All images should be supersized for full, clear detail of item on offer and its condition.
