You can see a lot of similar items on this page, but your colors are richer and the some other ones I have seen have a more distinct mark on the back.  They are averaging to be around 1960-1970, but your piece has its own flair.  The man's style of dress is one of them for me.  Hopefully this helps as a guide in the right direction.

Thank you!

French, 19c, maaaybe 1910s, dore bronze frame painted porcelain. The fabric backing and the numerals are typical French style.

Thank you!

You need to examine it with magnification, look for brush strokes. As perfect as it is, I suspect it might be a decal lacquered over to represent glass.
Molly's link takes you to "Fragonard" styles. Fragonard manufactures and sells perfume, not miniature paintings. I don't understand the connection.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard (French: 4 April 1732 – 22 August 1806) was a French painter and printmaker whose late Rococo manner was distinguished by remarkable facility, exuberance, and hedonism. ... Among his most popular works are genre paintings conveying an atmosphere of intimacy and veiled eroticism.

Fragonard is a term used to describe a style of painting that is reminiscent of his work.

You can find similar painted plaques here-very popular in 19c France. https://www.google.com/search?q=miniature+french+porcelain+plaques&...
