Large hand painted porcelain brooch or pin featuring a yellow and white daffodil. I have collected hand painted floral porcelain jewelry for over 30 years, and have written numerous articles about hand painted floral pins of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The daffodil or narcissus is perhaps the rarest flower seen in these pins.
The brooch is large, 2 1/8" x 1 3/4". The daffodil is on a very pale blue background. The white outer leaves are shaded with a pale lavender color. The entire flower is outlined in gold paint. There is a gold painted edge to the oval porcelain.
The setting is 18K gold plated (tested). A faint mark is visible on the inner rim. There is some wear to the gold plating, mostly on the inner side. though there is some on the lower left. The brooch has a locking or rolling clasp. There is some paint loss in the lower right of the flower, as shown in the close up photo.
