My mother gave me this enamel charm approximately .5"x1". No markings. A very colorful and pretty enamel scene w/Mary and angels (ascension?). The back looks to be brass or bronze base metal - never cleaned. It's a very nice quality charm she received from her mother - which would date it back to the 1930's. I think it's older than that.

Would appreciate any info - thank you!

    Another beauty ! I guess I am slow I miss so many wonderful posts !***

    Thank you Manikin! My mom has some really great 1940's-50's 14-16"? manikin dolls w/patterns and clothes meant for me. They were her dolls so I want her to look at them as long as she can. I suppose a niece could snag them before me - I'm far I'll ask her to take some pictures just in case. That will give her a project beside the pictures of our ancestors I keep bugging her to find....I think she enjoys searching but needs a gentle nudge every month or so.

    As you can tell from my user name, charms are not my usual beat, but I do have a charm bracelet, so thought I'd take a look.
    My sleuthing to identify cameo subjects leads me all sorts of places & has led me to this image. It is the Immaculate Conception, probably based on one of the many versions by the painter Murillo, who was inspired by the one by Guido Reni.

    Thank you cameosleuth for your ID. I think this was probably on a gold chain necklace originally.
