Stunningly beautiful hand painted portrait of a lady pendant in a gold filled frame. Dates from around the early to early-mid 19th century (pre-1850).
Lovely repousse frame and a large bail at the top. Definitely a statement piece!
+++ Measurements +++
Approximately 2 3/4" total height including the bail.
+++ Condition +++
The portrait inside the pendant is cracked vertically, but it still presents beautifully. It formerly had a brooch pin back, which has been removed. There are a few dents also in the back.
Still sturdy and wearable with care. The back is open (may have also had a lock of hair at some point), so use care to not get water inside this piece.
