This is a lovely antique Victorian era hand painted miniature portrait brooch. The portrait of a Victorian lady hand painted on porcelain. She has a beautiful face with very delicate features. All painted on a muted brown background, that makes her pink wrap really stand out. The pin is C1860.
The setting appears to be a low carat gold bezel setting. I have not tested it. The pin back is a tube type hinge with a simple C clasp and is silver in color.
1 3/8" by 1 1/8"
---The painting does have scratches. No chips that I can see.
---You can see where the pin back was added. (On the sides.) This pin may have started it's life as something other than a pin, but the pin that is in place was definitely put there during the Victorian era.
