For sale is this circa 1880's, gold filled brooch with a well done, hand painted porcelain portrait of a young child in a red hat. It measures almost 1/2" thick and weighs 24.3 grams. It has a thick "chain" frame and prong set paste crystals. The brooch has original "T" pin and "C" clasp and it was found with the clutch shown, so I've left it intact (it would prevent loss with this type of clasp). It has normal signs of age which is only very minor wear to the gold plating. Portrait is excellent.
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month; a portion of my sales will go to our local SPCA.
