Antique Georgian Miniature Marriage Brooch, circa 1770

About

From the 18th century a thrilling one and only 15 kt graphite miniature of a couple being joined. in wedlock. The longer you look, the more you see as the scene is full of symbols. Dressed in finery the wedding couple hold hands under a large heart canopy decked with dancing cupids and love doves. The groom holds his cloak. The bride wears her necklace. Cupids descend to give their blessings amid wreaths, urns of flowers, sprays and garlands. At bottom is the wedding wine goblet and cornucopia of flowers symbolizing fertility. What a treasure and one neither my Georgian jewelry experts nor I have ever seen before. A keepsake to be worn by a man on his lapel or a woman on her bodice. The pin is in perfect condition. The face is 1 3/8 inches long by 5/8 of an inch wide. the pin in entirety is 3 3/4 inches long. It takes the cake!
