Rare Silesian wirework and hand painted porcelain portrait pendant . It's quite a coincidence that this same image of Beatrice Cenci as the cover of the new book by Jeanette Hanisee Gabriel about Micro Mosaic this month will be published. See: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/217695-book-indispensable-for-every-serious-mic?in=user
It's a very old jewel of late 18th early 19th century, believed made in Silesia (now Poland). So far, I've found two such jewelry. On internet http://artofmourning.com/2014/05/08/berlin-ironwork-jewellery/
and the other in my possession these two are made with enamel . You can see mine, along with my newest gain on the last picture.
The pendant is very light in weight only 2.5 gr. and 3.8 x 2 cm.
As you can see the porcelain has a small scratch and I'd like to update. Therefore, I hereby require the opinion of Kyra(lisation) (Pascale). I hope she will give me .. Either ways and means to scratch I can update.
Altogether a rare asset that I can add to my small collection Iron Berlin Silesian wirework jewelry.
