Story

In a pastoral landscape, a spotted spaniel or hunting dog scampers freely beside a lake. Above - a bird soars; in the distance a white house is perched on a hilltop. All is tranquil and serene. Hand painted on porcelain, this naive and whimsical tableau is a veritable tribute of the adoration that humans hold for their canine brethren.

Set in a 14k yellow gold border, it has a Victorian feel but the fittings on the reverse are from the earlier 20th century and do not appear to have been replaced. Consequently, we are dating this brooch according to those attributes rather than assigning a 19th century date.
