Picked this up without much fanfare assuming that it was a print slapped on there to look good. Now that I look at it under the loupe, there are no dots like you normally see on prints. This looks handpainted. You can see some missing paint in the corner of her eye. I loaded the picture with too much flash so that you could get an idea of texture.
The back is what I call "layered"--yeah, probably not the technical term! :) It has both a clasp and pendant closure. It is beautiful, but I have no idea how to guesstimate the age when the closure or signature does not give it away. Anything jumping out to anybody?
