14KY Victorian Retro Hand Painted Portrait Brooch Pin.

This pin crafted in 14 karat yellow gold we believe to originally from the Victorian era ans was at one time perhaps used as a Mourning Brooch. Pin has a hand painted portrait of a women in a Sailor suit and judging by the style around the late 1930's to 1940's. We believe the original insert was either damaged or removed and then this portrait on faux ivory done in the 20th century. Picture is encased behind beveled glass and pinbeck has a Victorian era "C" closure. Pin is unmarked but tests to be 14 karat. It measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/4".
