Antique Georgian 12k Rose Gold Memorial Pin/Pendant
Details: This beautiful Georgian-era hand-painted sepia portrait pin/pendant is a commissioned memorial piece. Memorial pieces were a celebration of a loved one's life and a statement of grief and status. Thoughtfully rendered, it depicts a woman dressed in the Neo-classical style, leaning against an urn and plinth, surrounded by weeping willows.
Here at Metier, we have always been very taken with these very sentimental and highly detailed memorial pieces. The piece can be worn as either a pin or a pendant and features a fold down jump ring when not when not worn as a pendant.
Measurements: 7/8" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
Origin: English, c. 1780's.
Notes: Chain sold separately.
