Victorian Portrait Miniature Brooch, Circa 1900

The idealized reality often found in Victorian art is certainly not lost on this charming miniature portrait depicting a gypsy woman in rich attire, abundant dark curls frame her nearly heart-shaped face with engaging gentle eyes and luscious pouting red lips... indeed more noble and  benevolent than a goddess from heaven.  Within a gold border decorated with royal blue enamel and pearls at the cardinal points.  Objects such as this jewel are imbued with a romance that few other possessions can match.  Being in their presence is always a pleasure.  Maker's marks for Rikers, crafted in 14 karat gold and silver.  Victorian silver and gold miniature portrait brooch circa 1900.
