This vintage brooch pin from the USSR was hand-painted in the Fedoskina style of lacquer and depicts a lovely young woman in traditional costume.
The brooch measures 1 ¾” high by 1 ½” wide by 3/8” thick. The miniature portrait is set in a silver tone frame with twisted wire border and c-clasp pin on the back.
The woman wears a kokoshnik headdress with lustrous gold and red details. She has long auburn red hair. Her sarafan dress is bright turquoise/aqua with gold trim with a white blouse with turquoise details at the neckline.
The background is glossy black. On the reverse of the painting is the artist’s signature at top and “Made in USSR” below with another line of tiny letters. Condition is very fine.
