Exceptionally fine transfer pattern portrait brooch with wonderful hand-painted augmentation.

At first glance it looked like this brooch was entirely painted by hand. Even using my loupe, I could not quite distinguish that it was not. I used more magnification and I could see a few tiny, just about imperceptible dots in just a couple of places.

This is the finest most finely done transfer pattern that I have come across.

An elaborate amount of painting by a skilled artist's hand has been applied over the transfer ware pattern giving it a look of a fine painting on porcelain.

Portrait is securely held in place within a raised bezel oval frame. Edge of frame is trimmed in a lovely rope-like border.

Colors are wonderful – no fading. Just a lovely brooch of a lovely lady.

Has "C" Clasp which is original to the piece. Pin shaft section of clasp has been repaired. It is a newer assembly. Clasp is secure and works very well.

Condition is very good vintage.
