Antique late Victorian portrait miniature with diamond border, circa 1900
1 in stock
Here’s a fine miniature from the late 19th century.
A pretty lady, with colours still fresh and bright, sits in a navette-shaped diamond frame, with an original diamond bale.
I love her serene expression, and the restrained simplicity of the diamond border. The 57 old-cut stones add up to an estimated 1.14 carats.
At some time the back has been sealed with solder. I have seen this in other, similar pieces, and wonder if there is a memento so personal hidden within that someone chose to keep it secret from prying eyes …
