Watercolor On Ivory Portrait Miniature
Delicate image of young woman (watercolor on ivory). The bust-length oval portrait depicts the young woman in 3/4 pose facing left. The painting is housed in an oval gilt pendant frame with chased bezel. The painting itself is excellent and very sensitively done by an artist of some merit. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or restoration. Back is glazed and displays braided hair work and gold initials behind glass. Dress and hair style suggest circa 1805-1814. 3" long.
