$ 695.00

Antique Victorian 18K Gold Framed Miniature Hand Painted Portrait Madame de Pompadour Brooch Pendant. These magnificient hand painted portrait brooch's were made for the European toursit population in the early 1900's. This one is most likely French in origin. The gold encasement displays a beautifully hand painted depiction of Madame de Pompadour. The frame compliments the portrait very well with a scrolling repousse design. The back has a standard early c clasp pin back so it can be worn as a brooch as well as a bail to hang on a chain.

I did remove the back to show a photograph of the writing on the back "Madame de Pompadour". The front is also signed by the artist. The pendant is not marked but has been professionally tested to be 18k gold. The pin pendant measures 1 1/4" wide and high. The round portrait viewing area measures 1" wide. The pendant frame and the painting both appear to be in excellent condition. Shows no damage or repairs. Nice aged patina. Truly a remarkable piece of wearable art!
