Vintage Italian 14K Gold Pin/Pendant Combo with Lithographed Portrait Miniature
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From Italy, a souvenir of the Grand Tour, comes this yellow gold pin/pendant combination featuring a lithographed portrait of a lady on the inside and a fabulous lacy, filigree border. At the top right of her hairdo is a single faceted diamond, while at the bottom of her neck, a single faceted ruby. What IS missing, I believe are the hand painted touches that usually go with this type of Italian souvenir. BUT, this pin/pendant is HEAVY on the gold side and more than makes up for the lack of a hand painted portrait. Safety catch at the back along with a clutch (for added security) and a bale so that the piece can be hung on a chain. Oh, and if you don't like the portrait and want to "add your own" the back closure holding the portrait in place are just fold-over tabs - just lift and replace!
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. Original front glass in in place. Light surface marks to the back plate but these are there only from inserting the portrait or from being in a jewelry box with other treasures.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K Italy Uno A-errr
SIZE: Frame measures 1-5/8" x 1-7/16". Image size is 3/4" x 1-1/16".
WEIGHT: A hefty 16.2 grams without the bale - 16.5 grams with.
FINAL COMMENTS: Fabulous!
