  • Regular price $1,695.00

 Hand painted miniature portraits were the predecessors of photographs. When there was no other way to record a likeness of someone, the miniatures were treasured and passed down in families. Some portrait miniatures were painted of a specific person, and others were of classic style beauties rather than a particular real person. Often, these pieces were made into jewelry and worn as decoration, such as our example.

Finely hand painted on porcelain, this piece depicts a young lady, with her blond hair styled in ringlets, and a wry smile on her face. Converted from a brooch, we have paired this lovely girl with a replica shank adorned with flowers on the shoulders. A wonderful, classic work of art which is essential to any collector of antique jewelry!
