    Description

    George Washington: Hand-Painted Memorial Pendant. 1 1/4" x 1 1/2" oval brass frame housing a scene of the Goddess of Hope pointing to a cemetery monument inscribed "Washington Founder of the American Republic Ob. Decr 15 1799 Sa. Æ 68 years". Missing T-bar brooch attachment, but fitted with suspension loop, likely at time of manufacture. Missing the top piece of the glass cover. The image of the Goddess is actually painted on the underside of the glass cover. The remainder of the design is watercolor on paper. Quite a fine piece.
