Courting Couple FRAGONARD-STYLE porcelain brooch

Exquisitely decorated porcelain brooch made in Limoges, France. It features the famous Fragonard ‘Courting Couple’ love story scene. Here a couple dressed in fine 18th Century clothing is together outside in a form of garden. The young man is serenading the lady with a lute. She observes him while holding a fan in her right hand, fully open. This, according to the secret language of fans, could either mean “I like you” or “You are too willing”. Sadly, we will never know if he was successful with his serenading efforts.

The brooch can be securely closed with a clasp on the rear. It has some signs of its age, but remains a lovely item for a collector.
