A stunning antique portrait miniature pendant/ brooch that made its way to us via a French jewellery dealer. This regal piece features a carefully painted portrait of a fine lady looking off into the distance, her hair carefully tooled onto the top of her head, adorned with pearls. We just fell in love wit her whimsical look and beautiful features, the romance truly giving us Bridgerton inspiration.
The beautiful portrait is carefully framed in this exquisite locket, with a panel of glass protecting her porcelain features. Surrounding the central painting is a halo of fine seed pearls that make their way up to the static bale, all pearl perfectly matched and in excellent antique condition.
To the reverse of the pendant there is a simple pin that is likely a historical addition. The pin works well and is secure but is a little loose.
Beneath the pin there is a beautiful locket compartment that hinges open to reveal antique blue silk to the interior, although this could easily be changed, and your own keepsakes added.
A truly remarkable and fine quality piece, and one we are proud to be able to offer.
