This is a lovely pendant with the portrait of a beautiful lady. Please forgive the photos; I am in London at this listing, and my camera is dying a slow, agonizing death. I think it's finally passed, and I am having to use the photos I took last evening in the last light. I will buy a new camera when I get home and take more that show this piece to be the beauty it is. The gold content is 9 ct (unmarked but tested), and the piece is circa 1780. The pendant, including bale, measures 2 and /4 inches North to South, and 3/4 of an inch East to West.
