This lovely, French, Art Deco miniature pin is hallmarked for 800-900 silver quality.

The oval pin measures 1½” (3.9cms) by 1 and 3/16” (3.1cms) and it weighs 11.1 grams.

Within the glittering, marcasite set frame is the most beautiful, hand painted miniature portrait of a lady. It may be painted on ivorine. The lady is dressed in the clothing of the 19th century French Empire. Her hair is piled high in the fashion of the times. Her features are delicately painted. The portrait is covered with bevelled glass. I have since discovered that this is after a portrait of Madame Juliette Récamier( 1779 - 19 July 1843)who was a well known socialite of the time.

The back has a typically French, piston style clasp which functions well. On the back bar is a very clear boar’s head hallmark and a maker’s mark.

In fine vintage condition, this exquisite pin will arrive in a gift box,
