Miniature hand painted antique brooch, portrait of Queen Louise of Prussia on a Limoges blank.
This exquisite piece began as a transfer and then was hand painted, giving it a very lifelike look. The highly skilled artist artist has used a turquoise blue background on the lower portion with the top portion being pale yellow fading to white.
Queen Louise is wearing a light colored gown with raised enamel highlights and a flowing head scarf with raised enamel highlights.
The antique Limoges blank is mounted on a brass backing and set with eight prongs, this piece of porcelain jewelry is exquisite in every way.
The old "C" clasp functions perfectly. The pin is sharp, has a bit of a "wave" in it, is smooth, not pitted and shows no signs of rust.
This is a large brooch with a commanding presence and it is stunning!
