Hi friends, I recently acquired this brooch in the Rococo style, which I think might be an original hand painted cameo (as opposed to a transfer) by artist Jen-Honore Fragonard. The only thing is I am not 100% sure about any of this, so I wondered if anyone with a little more experience of Fragonard brooches might be able to shed some light on this for me.
Does the signature look right for example (does it even say Fragonard?). I am confused on the signature because it appears to have the initials 'b t' which would not be right for Jean-Honore.
Is my assessment of the originality of this painting correct based on the lack of pixelation that you might find on a transfer item?
Any thoughts at all gratefully received.
