During the late 1800's and early 1900's, porcelain brooches with images of children and famous individuals was very much in fashion, especially in the European countries. This lovely portrait of a young peasant girl, probably German, is a combination of hand painting and some transfer-detail work. It portrays a young girl with an attractive face, combed-back medium brown hair, attired in a beautiful dark blue shirt with light blue decoration and wide, ruffled collar and front against the white porcelain blank. The porcelain is bezel mounted with a twisted rope surround of gilded metal and has an early safely clasp mechanism. The brooch measures 1 3/4" in width and 2" in length with the porcelain incised "424" on the back. Very good condition with some wear to the gold gilt and a few minor scratches on the portrait which you would expect from use and age.
