Antique Victorian Porcelain Portrait Necklace Courting Scene
Romantic Antique Victorian Necklace with a Porcelain Portrait Courting scene is so charming! The central focus is flanked on each side with a round piece that is either a bell pull or door knocker with the sentiment evident. :) Imagine the breathless young man who once pulled this piece from his vest pocket for the young lady of his heart!
The necklace measures approximately 16" long and has its original clasp, which works properly. The central focus of the necklace is approximately 1-3/4 x 1-1/2" dominated by a bezel set oval porcelain piece on an ornate repousse piece that is closed in the back and houses the porcelain securely. The balance of the necklace is comprised of diamond shaped pieces with raised designs.
The necklace is in Excellent Condition although the plating is thin in places and shows its age a bit.
The romantic portrait porcelain courting scene theme in France was very popular in the late 1800s. The necklace may be a hand crafted piece and, although there are no marks, might easily be French.
This would make a great necklace to be married in or to gift to a future bride. Its over 100 years will certainly hold the shared promise for another relationship to last for another century, and so on...
Your gorgeous Victorian Portrait Porcelain Courting Scene Necklace will arrive in our signature gift box, ready to love or give.
