    Definately Victorian Era subjects. Pin looks like porcelain. It's hard to tell if it's painted on or "apliqued". It was my grandmothers. She was 91 when she died back in 1994. How old is it? No markings at all. Any ideas?

      It must be nice to have something from your grandmother-- do you remember her wearing it?

      The pin on the back is mid 20th century at the earliest-- since the pin extends beyond the porcelain, it could be a later pin on an earlier object. However, I believe that it is from the same time period.
