This antique oval shaped 18 carat gold framed brooch is from the early 20th Century and features a beautifully hand painted portrait of Saint Fabiola in enamel on copper. Saint Fabiola is the patron saint of difficult marriages and troubled relationships. The wearer of her image is believed to gain protection from troubles, as well as offers hope and harmony, and the strength for change. A poignant and fascinating sentiment.
This is a beautiful and emotive piece. Condition is excellent. Pin and closure is secure and well intact.
