LADY BE GOOD ( Victorian Portrait Miniature Pendant ): This alluring Portrait Miniature Pendant of "Luisa" gazes out with sensual confidence. It is an hypnotic hand painted image of a blue eyed beauty (late 18th or early 19th century). Her reddish curls and red fox fur draped over her shoulder enhance her perfect skin tones. A lush and vibrant reminder of lasting eternal beauty. It is French, painted on a bone wafer, beautifully set in a finely detailed brass frame with acanthus leaf decoration and beveled glass. Information in pencil on the back is as follows: "Luisa della Valiere de Coursis". There is also and imprint of some kind that is indiscernible. Ring at top can be used with a watch pin on your blazer lapel or add a bale to the ring and it will make an eye catching pendant. Condition: Excellent. 2 5/8" high, 2 1/8" wide.
