This Gorgeous Antique Hand Painted Enamel Brooch is Guaranteed to Please. And Guaranteed to Catch Eyes Whenever it is on Display. The Floral Decoration is The Most Beautiful And Rare Subject Matter That I Have Seen in This Genre. Typically This Type of Victorian or 19th Century European Jewellery Was Limited to Landscapes And Portraits. The Present Example Represents One of Only a Small Corpus That Were Created With a Still Life Subject ( Natura Morta ). It is Likely That This Beautiful Brooch Originates From Either France or Italy And Dates to The Mid 19th Century. What Makes This Example Particularly Unique And Desirable is The The 18K Gold Mount That Creates The Visual Impression of a Frame. Together The Hand Painted Enamel Plaque Combined With The 18K Gold Mount Create a “Still Life” in Miniature. The Collective Beauty of This Gorgeous Object is Breathtaking. The Variety of Carefully Colour Coordinated Flowers That Include Forget me Nots, Poppy, Roses, Tulips, Jasmine And Green Foliage Are Strategically Placed Within And Around a Terracotta Vase And Upon a Marble Ledge. This Miniature Work of Art Draws Much Inspiration From Popular 17th Century Baroque Genre of “Still Life” . And I Would Not be Surprised if There is an Original of This Image in a Museum Somewhere Around The World. I Highly Recommend This Object as a Truly Eye Catching Work of Supreme Fine Art And Jewellery. And I Believe The Next Owner Will be Absolutely Delighted With This Purchase. The Condition is Remarkably Good With Minimal Wear And Scratching To The Surface. There is a Scratch or a Mark to The Back But it is Most Likely a Mark as I Cannot Feel it With My Nails or Fingers. It is Perfectly Stable And Ready To Turn Heads.

Dimensions: Image 3.2 cm x 3.8 cm With Mount: 4.6 cm x 4.6 cm
Origin: Europe- Italy or France
Date: Circa 1850
