ANTIQUE GEORGIAN PORTRAIT SWIVEL BROOCH CIRCA 1800
This wonderful antique portrait Swivel Brooch is Georgian Circa 1800.
The piece displays a hand-painted Portrait on an Ivory base depicting a smiling woman in Georgian dress. This has been expertly done with fine detail – especially the eyes, mouth and hair. Her smile resembles the smile of the Mona Lisa.
The Brooch swivels around and on the other side there is a print of a young man in early Victorian/ Georgian dress.
The Swivel mechanism is in perfect working order, and the whole brooch is in pristine condition.
Either of these pictures could be taken out and replaced with personal pictures if preferred.
The frame is set in Silver, gilded in Gold boasting a classic Georgian design with wave-like undulations all the way round.
A one of a kind antique brooch that’s steeped in Georgian history, a true work of art!
