19C Brooch Hand Painted Opaline Plaque Picture/Hair Curl Compartment

Delightful gold-plated brooch dated about 1840/60.

The blue opaline glass plaque is decorated with a hand painted flower bouquet, a very fine enamel painting work. The opaline plaque has lovely mounts with fine metal border decorated with fine leaves. Larger leaf-shape ornaments to the edges.

The back side contains a compartment for a photograph or hair curl.

The condition is very good, no cracks or repaired. The opaline plaque has a fine depression on the edge, this insignificant imperfect is hard to see and comes doubtless from the fabrication.

The brooch measures 1.6 inches in height and 1.2 inches in width. Original found state, not cleaned.

Wonderful old jewelry, very apart and hard to find, will fit any dress, elegant or sporty!
