Jewel of the day: Victorian angel pin

I was drawn to this pin at an antiques show because I had never seen one of these painted porcelain pins that wasn’t simply of flowers. Portraits do exist, but this little angel really captured my heart. Terribly sentimental and utterly Victorian. This is a transfer print applied to porcelain, brass backed. It’s likely circa 1880-1900.
