Persian Story Brooch Hand Painted MOP

MOP/Sterling | Brooch
This beautiful old Persian story brooch is hand painted and edged with silver filigree. It depicts a hunting scene with men riding on horseback in mid chase running past a camp site with a tent. Hand painted on Mother of pearl shell and edged with tiny silver filigree flowers. The shell and painting are in excellent condition with no loss of paint, however the filigree is a bit damaged. It is not even and looks like it may have been snagged at one point. Easily repaired by a jeweler.

Measures 2" x 1 1/2" with an angle mounted open C clasp closure
