Satisfied, happy customers are our goal and we stand behind everything we sell. Antique Hand Painted on Porcelain Portrait Miniature Brooch/Pendant.An exciting, unusual example of the Georgian portrait miniature pin or pendant. Not a mourning piece done in memory of a departed loved one, but a sentimental love token. Done in paint on porcelain, the sitter wears a pretty late Georgian gown with a blue sash at the empire waist that flows into a huge bow at back. She has her elbow on her knee and her hand extended. A bird is perched on her finger.
The girl smiles at the bird and the bird sings. The painting is framed in solid gold that tests for 12-14kt.The frame has white enamel on the gold in a line of arrows. This is a lovely and interesting piece of early jewelry, filled with symbolism. The girl is smiling; the bird is singing. The girl sits beside a living tree, which symbolizes life and growth. The bird she holds is a dove, symbolic in jewelry for friendship and hope.
The vignette is surrounded by arrows, symbols of love. The color white in the enamel on the frame suggests that the recipient of the brooch is a maiden. The case is solid 12-14kt gold. It is in very, very fine condition, with the enamel on the frame very good after all these years, and the colors of the portrait miniature unfaded and clear.Original fittings with a pin to wear as a brooch, and a ring to wear as a pendant. 1 3/8"L X 3/4"W.
