Lovely miniature art of the Virgin Mary, Mater Dolorosa, Mother of Sorrows, created under bubble glass of what appears to be fine butterfly wing art with hand painting as well,in fabulous detail, mounted on marked Hoffman sterling silver and also labeled on the back BVM in the sterling (for Blessed Virgin Mary). This fabulous miniature measures 1 & 1/4" tall including the loop and is in very good condition. Very hard to photograph due to the small size and the curve of the glass; it is much much prettier than the photos. The top loop allows this to be worn if desired or it can be mounted as art.
