Pendant, Mother and Child, GeorgianPendant, Mother and Child, Georgian

This is a nice painting, most likely French, which is a watercolor of Mother and child. The mother has the one breast bare ( a common symbolism of which have yet to find the significance) . The painting is circa 1770, but the eglomise locket appears to be circa 1810. The two pieces go very well together, as there are shades of pink in both the locket and the painting. The metal locket is in very good condition, and there is fabric on the back, where another miniature, portrait of a loved on, or cherished lock of hair could be placed. There is no damage to the painting, and it has a bale for hanging it from a chain or ribbon. Framed, the piece measures 1 and 5/8 inches in diameter, not counting bale.The locket has a tight clasp, but it can be opened, quite easily, to remove the miniature, or to place something on the back.
