For your consideration is beautiful vintage hand painted miniature portrait brooch set in an 800 silver frame. Extremely well painted and depicting a beautiful lady ( Madonna? ) in a red scarf. The portrait is under glass and the frame has a nice ornate heart filigree edging. It dates to circa 1930s and is most likely Italian in origin. It has a locking pin mechanism and it also has a bail so that it can be worn as a pendant on a necklace. It is marked 800 on the back for 800 silver in two places.
It measures 1 and 3/4 inches by 1 and 1/4 inch not counting the bail.
It is in excellent condition but I did notice it only has 3 tabs and some hearts are not 100 percent uniform. I am not sure why but it is guaranteed secure. This is so much prettier in person!
