MAGNIFICENT and MASSIVE 14k yellow gold antique Victorian hand-painted on porcelain portrait brooch pin with stationary bail on back for use as a pendant. The subject is Georgiana Cavendish Duchess of Devonshire, Measures 2-3/4" x 2-1/4" x 3/8" thick. With heavy thick construction and applied scroll work. The portrait measures 2-1/16" x 1-11/16". A beautiful portrait of a woman wearing a large black feather plumed hat and holding a single rose in soft shades of blue, green, black, gray, and white, with touches of pink. High magnification reveals small individual brush strokes, although I can see no signature. The back has a piece of brown silk, also under glass, most likely for use as a hair locket memento. The findings on the back are original, long slightly curved white metal pin stem, simple C shaped clasp with bottom extension (helps to act as a stop or a safety when worn), long hinge tube assembly. In outstanding exceptionally well babied condition, only ever so slight age appropriate wear. Circa mid 1800s.

Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire (née Spencer) 7 June 1757 – 30 March 1806, was the first wife of William Cavendish, 5th Duke of Devonshire, and mother of the 6th Duke of Devonshire.

Her father, John Spencer, 1st Earl Spencer, was a great-grandson of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Her niece was Lady Caroline Lamb. She was the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales.

She attained a large amount of fame in her lifetime. She became notorious for her marital arrangements, her catastrophic love affairs, and her love of gambling; she was famous for her beauty and her political campaigning; and she was a leader of fashionable style and was often the subject of artwork.
