Victorian Painted Porcelain Portrait Brooch
This beautiful Victorian painted porcelain brooch depicts a young woman in the Bouguerea style. With her white peasant blouse off the shoulder, the girl leans on a garden wall looking off, perhaps hoping for a glance of her beloved. A coral necklace and red skirt complete her dress. Was most likely a piece of souvenir jewelry from a Grand Tour. Set in brass with a C clasp, the brooch is one of the largest I've seen. A beautiful addition to your portrait collection!
Whether choosing a piece for yourself, or selecting a gift for that special person in your life, vintage jewelry from Rhinestone Byrd reflects quality, and distinctive beauty. Today, when it is so easy to order something generic, vintage says you took time to express your appreciation for nostalgia, quality design and craftsmanship, and timeless fashion.
Each piece is carefully and securely packaged in a gift box, and tied with a satin ribbon. Presented with the care and attention to detail that gift giving deserves.
The brooch measures 2 3/4" x 2 1/4".
Good condition, with some minor scratches.
