Retro 10kt Painted Porcelain Cherub Pin/Pendant
A lovely painted porcelain pin/pendant from the Retro (ca1940) era! This wonderful piece is comprised of an oval porcelain plaque held within a 10kt gold bezel setting. The porcelain has the wonderful hand painted image of a sweet winged cherub resting atop a fluffy cloud. The color and detail is lovely, depicting the cherub resting its chin on its hand with a soft gaze on its face, as though deep in thought. The gold frame is decorated with a simple twisted gold rope border. On the back of the piece is a secure pin clasp, and at the top is a swinging bail for hanging from a fine chain. It's a versatile piece that would look equally lovely worn as a pendant or pinned to a favorite garment!
Measurements: The pin/pendant hangs 1 5/8" long, measures 1 1/2" wide, and is 3/16" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pin/pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the painted porcelain plaque or to the gold setting. The pin clasp and swinging bail are both secure and in good working condition.
