Large Victorian portrait brooch, 2 3/8" x 2". It is a hand painted image of a beautiful lady holding a bouquet of roses. The portrait is framed by a gold colored trim, with turquoise moriage accents.
The brooch is sturdy porcelain with no chips or cracks. There is some wear to the gold trim, as metallic paint was fired at a lower temperature and wears more readily.
The brooch has a brass backing and pin with an old fashioned c-clasp. Circa 1890 - 1900.
