A superb example of an original Victorian hand painted porcelain brooch. The hand painted central porcelain plaque is absolutely wonderful with its crisp and utterly charming depiction of a young child tying a pink bow around the neck of their loyal little spaniel type dog- we love the purple sky. This quality example is 100% guaranteed to be all hand painted, it is not a transfer or a decal the technique that was used in later or more inferior examples..look through a loupe for tiny dots on such transfer printed examples. Our hand painted rectangular porcelain plaque is set within its own untested gilt bezel within a scrolling gilt metal frame with enclosed gilt metal backing plate with tube hinge, C clasp and safety chain.
An oh, so sweet example that is perfect for your special dolls house or 19th century jewelry collection.
Size: Frame 2.25" by 1.75", porcelain panel 1 9/16" by 1.25"
Condition: Good but not perfect. Free from chips, cracks or nibbles. As shown on our many images some light surface marks to the porcelain portrait. Some tarnish to the gilt metal bezel.
