From an era before photography when hand painted portraits were beloved keepsakes.

It is unsigned and likely painted by a limner.(Limners were often anonymous, traveling from town to town in search of work.)

Circa 1890-1900 (late Victorian)

Double twist gold-filled mounting.

Pin back was professionally replaced many years ago as it is an early form of "safety" clasp. This translates to worry free wear!

Very large size!!! 3 x 2.25 inches ((7.6 x 6.4 cm)
