Persian 18 karat Gold Oval Miniature on Ivory Portrait. 19th C. large, oval, ivory pin has a beautifully rendered portrait of a young Persian woman in traditional garb and jewelry. While this miniature portrait is unsigned, it was painted by a very skilled artist. It is set in an oval, gold frame which is off-set by another gold, rigaree frame. The original pin back and closure function properly. Good condition, although there is evidence of old solder repairs to the prongs which support the portrait in the rigaree frame. This is only visible when viewing the back of the pin or brooch. Measures approximately 2 5/8" by 2 1/8". Total weight is 37.7 grams.
