14K Gold Hand Painted Enamel Virgin Mary and Child Medallion
A lovely hand-painted enamel medallion made of 14 karats of yellow gold. The medallion has a delicately rendered Virgin with child, suspended against a pink and purple sky. There are lovely gold painted details, and close up you can see that the miniature painting is quite superb. The medallion weighs 1.9 grams and measures 1 x 1/2 inches. It has a hand-written note in vintage script on the reverse. It is a perfect small token of affection. The medallion has a nice dark patina, aging the piece. Circa 1930s, made in Italy. The chain that is pictured does not come with the piece, but chains are available on Kirsten's Corner if one is needed.
