1950's handpainted Crinoline Lady Brooch by TLM

This is a really lovely Crinoline Lady Brooch.  It is a hand-painted picture mounted under glass like a beautiful miniature portrait.  The brooch is the work of Birmingham based Thomas L. Mott and is marked on the reverse with their trademark - TLM in an Artist's Palette and the words ' Made in England'.  The Paintresses from this factory used paintbrushes with only one or two fine hairs to carry out their art. The resulting Crinoline Ladies are superb in their detail some have white powdered wigs,  most have cupid-bow lips and details such as lace ruffled frocks with little flower details and delicate fans.  This particular lady looks like she could be a 1950's debutante!  Her frock is a huge crinoline with soft blue over pink ruffles, decorated with swags of red roses.The gallery for the brooch is a gold plated frame which would also make this item great to use as a picture on a dolls house wall!  The size is approximately 2 and a quarter inches by one and three quarter inches.  The brooch fastens with a secure roll-over type clasp and it also has a tiny little loop at the top which would allow you to fasten your own ring and chain to wear this as a pendant if you wanted to do this. T.L. Mott worked in the 1950's and as well as their wonderful and collectable Crinoline Ladies range, they also produced highly detailed garden scenes and seaside scenes.  This brooch is in good vintage order with a few scratches on the glass which do not detract from its appeal.
