Pair of Enamel & Gold Masked Miniature Brooches

35 Admirers

A most unusual pair of hand painted enamel brooches which depict lover’s and onlookers in masks. Quite what it all means I do not know. She appears to have let a bird out of it’s cage and is challenging her beau. The mounts are 15ct gold and could well be Italian work. They were made circa 1820, probably in Venice. It is lovely that they have survived together as they could easily have been broken up over the years.
