Lovely hand painted Virgin Mary miniature, under a slight bubble glass in lovely marked 800 silver mounting. It features lovely turquoise blue beads plus ornate metalwork on the mounting, and is from Italy. The art of Mary is fabulous with rich colors and amazing detail. There is a signature to the side which we can not read. It is in its original tan genuine leather box from the original owner. The mounting has a fastener on the back for wearing and also a top loop for hanging. It measures 1 & 3/8" tall by 1 & 1/8" wide and is in very good condition. We really had trouble with the photos of this item due to the slight bubble glass and small size and reflectivity of the art.
