For your consideration is this stunning hand painted miniature portrait pin and pendant, Expertly painted and I believe it is an Italian piece possibly a souvenir piece and circa 1930s 1940s. The top is beautifully done with nice open work, marcasites and fresh water pearls. the pin is marked 800 indicating it is 800 silver. It has a pin back as well as a loop .
It measures 1 and 3/4 inches by 1 and 1/4 inches across the widest points.
It is in excellent condition. Fresh water pearls are irregular in color and shape as one would expect.
