Beautiful portrait of a victorian lady, dressed in her finest regalia, her fair hair swept up under a magnificent hat bestowed with pink ribbons. The large painted oval portrait is hand painted onto porcelain by an artist over an initial transfer. There are identifiable brush strokes to the surface. The porcelain has then been claw set onto the pinchbeck surround with an early style 'C' clasp dating it to 1890 - 1900's. Around the edges of the brooch is heavy 24 carat gold raised painted leaf gilding. The brooch fitting is working well and the brooch is in very good antique condition.
