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 lad, probably German, is a combination of hand painting and some transfer-detail work. It portrays a young lad with an handsome face, slightly curly black hair, attired in a gold and red jacket, white shirt and stylish green hat with feather adornments, against the white to light blue porcelain blank. The porcelain is bezel mounted with an ornate floral and leaf surround of gilded metal. early non-safely clasp mechanism and flip-up ring to transform the piece into a pendant when paired with a neck-chain. The oval brooch measures 1 1/2" in width and 1 7/8" in length. Very good condition with minor wear to the gold gilt and one tiny scratch on the lad's chin which you would expect from use and age.
