Antique Edwardian 14K Gold & Hand Painted Porcelain Cameo Pendant/Pin Combo
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From the same estate that yielded up the hinged bangle bracelet I currently have on offer comes this overlay large hand painted porcelain cameo of a lady set in rose gold. With a bale so the piece can be worn as a pendant, the true intent of this piece I think serves better as a pin/brooch. The porcelain cab is signed at the back "Estelle Claus" - I believe the cab is her artwork (and yes, if you do a Internet search you will see that some of her other porcelain pieces are up for sale). There is a "clutch" at the back of the piece to keep the pin from slipping out of its simple c-catch.
CONDITION: Very nice with just a touch of light surface wear on the porcelain cab. The blue "dot" on the lady's pearl headdress has opened or fractured OR there was a small rhinestone in this spot that has since disappeared. It appears there is enough space to glue another one in if desired.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: None as is the norm with regular "stock" pieces of this era. Metal was lightly acid tested for content.
SIZE: 2" wide x 2-3/8" high without benefit of the bale.
WEIGHT: A hefty 26 grams!
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
