PRETTY BABY OF MINE: This darling little baby face is a tiny miniature painted on ivory. The baby is wearing a beautiful Victorian christening gown and a little gold pin. Itís hard to believe that this is not a photo. It is so life-like and animated behind the glass. The 18 carat gold pendant setting is decorated with 8 natural pearls around the edge and 2 more pearls on the chain bezel. The reverse side contains a photo behind glass of the same boy a few years later wearing a wonderful tasseled cap. The piece dates from around 1880 - 1890. A real treasure awaiting a new family. Such delicate fine work is rare. Condition: Excellent. No pearls missing. 1" in diameter. Lovely 3/8" detailed bezel.
