VICTORIAN woven hair and portrait swivel brooch

VICTORIAN antique woven hair and portrait swivel brooch with a front portrait of a gorgeous lady dressed like a gypsy, 2-1/3" by 2-1/8".

The back glass-covered compartment houses lovely blond hair work and the brooch swivels to be worn with either side facing out.

The portrait is hand painted and has a scratch or two, but the frame is missing the decorative element at the bottom entirely (see the last view), so this is priced as is.

These portraits were often painted in Germany and imported to England to be made into jewelry, similar to the Gypsy Boy seen in jet jewelry. ViewView
