VERY RARE COLLECTABLE VICTORIAN COURT CARD BROOCH CIRCA 1890

$ 4,200

Beautifully imagined and exquisitely executed as a romantic gift and good luck charm, this antique brooch of the three court cards of the suit of hearts are displayed fanned and overlapped and pierced with a natural pearl set staff redolent of cupids arrow.  Each hand painted card is delicately hand painted in polychrome enamel with even the reverse exquisitely detailed.  The multi colours allow it to be worn with anything and its fascinating subject matter certainly make it a talking point.  This piece was made to celebrate good luck and love.
