Victorian Crowned Portrait Brooch


£1,395.00 GBP

A beautiful bejewelled brooch. The front contains a locket compartment with a hand painted portrait miniature of a lady wearing a white lace shawl.

The reverse is engraved MT HRH. This alongside the crown to the front suggests this is a royalist piece and possibly depicts a European royal such as Maria Theresa of Austria. 

Circa 1850, Continental Europe.

Set with rubies, rose cut diamonds and pearls.

Tests as 15-18ct gold.

3cm length and 2cm width.

Nice clean condition with all stones intact. The reverse of the piece is curved and the brooch fitting is a later addition suggesting that this was converted from another item of jewellery into a brooch. Small scratches to the locket glass. Closed back stones - we would suggest care taken when this piece is worn. 

Free international shipping and will be sent gift boxed.
