This sweet painted portrait pin is done in a surround of what appears to be paste or marcasite. The filigree metal frames a sweet little painted portrait of a lady in a dark blue French style hat tied under her chin. Her outfit is of the same era in pastel colors. You can see her reddish brown hair, dark eyes and red lips. The background is a soft greenish pastel coloration. The center painting is framed in an etched metal and there is a convex and beveled glass or crystal on top of the painting.

The back is also etched. There is a trombone clasp. I cannot detect a mark for metal. It might be sterling but I don't see a sterling mark. Measurements are 3/4 inch wide by 1/2 inch high for the painted area and about 1-1/4 by 1-1/8 high for the entire pin.

Overall condition is good with a couple of the stones missing. This piece oozes charm! Great gift for someone who loves cameos and French themed jewelry gifts.
