An extraordinary 18th century Georgian portrait miniature set into a substantial 18ct gold locket pendant. Exquisitely painted and superb quality the reverse of the pendant has a solid gold back with a small oval compartment in the centre containing a braided hair weave. As an added treat the miniature comes in the antique faux tortoiseshell jewellers case shown in the photos.

The bust length portrait is meticulously painted in vivid watercolours mixed with gum arabic so it has a beautiful glossy finish. The painting depicts a beautiful young Regency era woman against a rich orange and brown background. She wears a white satin and lace gown that provides a striking contrast against the vibrant background and she is wearing what looks like a tiny coral brooch in her décolletage. With her hair upswept in elaborate loops and cascading curls she looks like she has just stepped out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel!

Steeped in history this beautiful miniature masterpiece is an absolute delight. Portrait miniatures were used as portable and wearable reminders of loved ones long before the advent of photography and they offer us a fascinating glimpse into the past.

A one of a kind and truly special addition to your antique jewellery collection. Please note the chain shown is not included. We have more photos available on our website at www.mercymadge.com
