This is a wonderful pen or pendant made of hallmarked 800 silver. It contains an oval hand painted portrait. I have been advised by a Ruby Lane customer that it is a self portrait done by Raphael. The portrait, done on board, does appear to have a signature, though not very legible. The portrait has long hair, a black cap and red cloak. There is a glass cover over the picture. The oval portrait is surrounded by a silver rope border. The back has a bale for your chain and a pin with a safety catch.
The piece weighs 8.3 grams and is in fine vintage condition. It measures 1 3/8" by 1 1/8".
