Antique Hand Painted Miniature Portrait Sterling Brooch. With Bohemian Rose Cut Garnet accents. Portrait looks like from the Victorian era and is prong set behind clear celluloid. The frame looks more modern, I would say 1920's.
Metal: Sterling Silver, Stamped 925. Brooch Size (with garnets) : 48.16mm x 31.5mm. Portrait Size : 41.8mm x 31.5mm. Stone Sizes: 6.2mm x 3.3mm. The brooch is in good working condition with signs of normal wear on the metal.
In addition to the prongs it appears that this was also glued, as there is some visible residue around the edges. There is patina to the metal due to age.
Clasp opens and closes fine. Photos taken in natural light and accurately represent the item. Color may vary depending on monitor. Comes in a pretty gift box.
They may not be 100% perfect, which is what adds to their charm. I describe all vintage and antique items to the best of my knowledge.
They may have small flaws, which I will mention if not obvious in the photos. The photos were taken with a closeup macro lens and the item may appear larger than real-life.
