Help. Totally new area for me! I know someone out there will point me in the right direction.
This little picture is 3" in diameter. On the backside there are 4 screws with caps, like the backs of earrings.
I am guessing a brooch? I'm not even sure which category to chose.
Porcelain. Two young girls and inscription on back.
Any insight or advice is appreciated. TIA
UPDATE due to your help and expertise!
"F. Graf s’m E. Leiner z fr Eng 1857." I've learned the "z fr Eng" is "zur freundliche Erinnerung " meaning "for a friendly memory" and perhaps date of August 1st, 1857
The 4 points with attachments similar to an earring back, may lead one to a ribbon or sash brooch.
