This vintage Limoges enamel on porcelain brooch features a portrait of a lovely southern belle in blue and white and can also be worn as a pendant.
The gold-plated, rope-twist frame measures 1 7/8" high by 1 3/8" wide by 1/4" thick. The prongs are fancy trefoil (clover) shapes. The portrait is an applied transfer with details hand-painted in white. Her upswept hair style has ringlets at he back and is adorned with tiny flowers. She wears a low bodice on her gown with a white, wispy shoulder trim. A slim pendant complements her drop earrings.
On the back is a gold luster stamp for Limoges (a little smudged). The pin has a safety clasp. The pendant bail swings out of sight when not in use. (Chain shown for illustration only, not included).
Condition is excellent.
