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! :-))
