I was the only bidder on this beauty!

Bright pinchbeck mount, 22 E stamped at back of the porcelain.

6.2cm (2.4/8") high, 5.5cm (2.1/8") wide.

The original painting is by Gustav Richter, 1823/1884.

This portrait was widely reproduced, either in prints and enamel plaques or brooches, during 19th century. It seems Germany made these pieces.

I prefer the serious expression he shows to the "kitch cuteness" of his siblings! :-))

    Is there a secret to being the only bidder, or actually placing a bid at the last moment while the other bidders are doing something else?

    Kyra - what a beautiful brooch this is - congratulations. Do you have any idea of the age of this piece?
  4. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Ha, Gillian, I don't know why nobody else bid on it... I didn't snipe but bid 3 days before the end :-)
    For the age of the piece, I place it around 1860, because of the mount and size too.
    Thank you for your interest!

    Thanks Aura and Fortapache for your loves :-D
