She is a delicate beauty--soft brown eyes, the hint of a smile, fair skin tone and a splendid sweep of her hair-do, are the hallmarks of this striking portrait. In addition there are 96 natural pearls encircling the portrait. All are mounted in an 18K gold frame. The gold has been acid tested and is guaranteed to be 18K. The reverse is a glass covered locket compartment featuring human hair woven in a checkerboard pattern.

The brooch weighs 5.2 grams and measures 1 1/2 inches in diameter. It appears that the "T" pin and unusual clasp are original but may have been re-enforced in the distant past. The glass on both the front and back are free of scratches. We believe the portrait is a water color painted on parchment. We did not open the back to see if there was a signature. We leave that to any lucky new owner.

The condition is wonderful.
