This lovely brooch is a great example of a hand painted portrait on porcelain depicting a beautiful lady with a fan. The gilt metal frame is wonderfully crafted with flower and leaf motifs. It measures 2 1/8" long and 1 3/4" wide. Look in to her eyes - how can you resist?
In early days, how a woman held a fan had a distinct meaning, the language of the fan was well known. The woman on this brooch is sending a signal to a suitor with her fan shut and held to her heart. The meaning is "you have won my heart" - how great is that? Send a message right away and buy this one for your sweetheart.
