This beautifully detailed portrait of an unknown young noblewoman was likely made in the 1800s. Based on the fleur de lis design at her shoulders, I'm guessing French. Or perhaps Austrian, as the style is similar to others made there at that time.
Clearly this was painted by a master with a careful eye, a steady hand, and with the finest of brushes. Look at the texture of her braided hair. The jewels in her crown seem to glisten. The artist even captured the lustre of the pearls around her neck.
The bezel also appears to be handmade.
It is neither signed nor stamped so I don't know if it's gold or gold-plate, however based on the quality and delicacy of the piece. it seems to be fine jewelry. This leads me to think it was custom-made for the woman in the painting vs. for sale in a shop.
The gold vermeil and enameled flowered bar pin is likely not orginal to this piece, but I am including as this is how it came to me.
Make me a reasonable offer.
