True Victorian Hand Painted Porcelain Brooch, Oval, Victorian Woman, missing pin

$ 15.00

True Vintage Victorian Hand Painted Woman oval porcelain brooch that is 1.72" by 1".  It has a gold tone backing but is missing the pin - the hinged part and c-clasp are there - could be repaired or repurposed.  This has a victorian woman - I thought perhaps it was a decal but under magnification  it appears you can see individual brushed areas and no definitive edge that decals have.  It has a gold leaf edged border.   The painting is not worn.  Approximate age is the late 1800's.  The porcelain is held by six pointed prongs.  This came from a  Pennsylvania estate auction. I was fortunate enough to get other pieces of the collection that I have listed in this website as well as Etsy which you can find at  I have about six total pieces of porcelain at the time of this listing and more victorian and art deco brooches.   

 Surface flaws and size may appear larger as I do magnify photos but do not enhance them - it is simply point and click.

Thank you for stopping in and checking us out.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.

Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
