Jewelled Miniature portrait of Renaissance Queen with crown under glass necklace
Tiny bronze and black glass beads form the design on this gorgeous queen's cape and she even has a tiny genuine brass crown and a miniature brass cloak clasp. Dimensional and divine she is truly a work of art. Each of the miniscule beads were set by hand and when you hold it to the light tiny sparkles of light show thru. Under glass, she stays safe for viewing and wearing and especially admiring. One of a kind and much more beautiful and detailed than the photos, she hangs from a thick silvered chain with antique links that hold the glass watch case. The pearl that hangs from the pendant is 1920's glass and is in excellent condition. Rescued from an old Haskell piece that was unsalvagable, it fit most appropriately on this medieval piece. The chain is 23" long and the total drop is 1 little over 3" long. Zoom in on the photos and you can see the way the beads make this queen seem as if she has on real clothes and a crown.
