This is a very pretty vintage brooch featuring a celluloid courting scene litho portrait in the center of a wide openwork light gold tone frame. Overall size is 2" oval. Deep red cabochons symbolic of love accent the frame. This has the older C-clasp on the back and is marked HYG. It resembles those made in Western Germany or Czechoslavakia. I have yet to identify the mark.

Portrait Jewelry was a favorite of our ancestors and their skills and
love for the art were passed down for generations. The beautiful images including loved ones, flowers and pastoral romantic scenes were favorite subjects.
Although similar in design, each one became a one of a kind work of art.
Hand painting was of the finest and was done on porcelain, ivory and other materials. For those not so artistically inclined,(or later for mass production) lithography was applied to the base and then "hand touched" or accented by another. One famous designer of such lithography was "Fraggonard".
These romantic scenes are usually signed at the bottom. Factories in Limoges, France supplied porcelain blanks and lithographies were done for for young women to use as a parlor craft to increase their "cultural" dowery
