Hand Painted Wooden Vintage Brooch
The image of a lady hand painted on to a round wooden disc. She is dressed in European dress, likely to be Ukrainian, or perhaps Greek. She holds a sheaf of wheat in her hands. Wheat has been a symbol of fertility and longevity often depicted in jewellery and paintings over a long period of time. There is a safety pin clasp embedded in to the back. It is difficult to pin point a date with hand made items - there is a little wear to the painting, still quite charming and at least 30 - 40 years old I would think. Substantial in size at 6cms across. Charming pre loved vintage, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
