Victorian 15ct Gold Brooch of a Fox Head by Ford



A very finely painted enamel on gold miniature by W B Ford 1871. William Bishop Ford was born in 1832 and died in 1922. He was a student of William Essex who also painted miniatures of dogs and other animals. Their sought after miniatures were mostly set in gold mounts such as this example. The subject of a wily fox is beautifully interpreted. It is in lovely condition and signed and dated on the reverse.
