Early 1900s French Brooch w/ MIniature Painting of Church
This is an unusual circa early 1900s French brooch containing an impressionistic miniature painting of Notre-Dame de Lorette and the Sacre-Coeur churches viewed view from the rue Laffite. The painting is housed under an arched glass cover. The setting is brass. The back has an old fashioned trombone style sliding tube clasp. It is marked FRANCE and a makers mark of GIL inside a diamond shape. the painting is also signed but is illegible to me. The church resembles Sacre Coeur Basilica, but may be another landmark church.
The brooch measures 1" x 1.5". The painting along measures .75" x 1".
Condition is good with expected patina.
This is quite an unusual brooch. I quite like miniature paintings in antique and vintage jewelry. What better way to wear a piece of art.
