A stunning and very scarce mid 19th century enamel on copper oval portrait pin that is smaller than thumb size. This gorgeous portrait enamel is set within a chased gilt metal frame (untested, likely gold fill). This tiny example depicts a hand enameled portrait of the English poet Lord Byron in dramatic pose with head in his hands. The chased gilt metal frame is a true delight and typical of this Victorian period jewelry of 1840s. This oh so sweet enamel pin most likely produced in Switzerland. Complete with white metal tube hinge and C clasp.
Size : 3/4" (2 cm) tall x 0.5" ( 1.2 cm) wide. It is in very good condition.
It is ready to wear by a special doll, shown modeled by our 22 inch and 28 inch tall girls..thank you girls.
We do have an even smaller example for sale separately, shown in last but one image.
