This small treasure is amazing. This lovely lady is so faithfully depicted, with each jewel in her tiara, each pearl in her necklace, clearly and beautifully painted. She is framed in a lovely gold plated easel back frame. It has a very nice and appropriate braid style bezel. I am not familiar with the maker of the frame; it is signed "A. M. W," The porcelain itself is 1 and 1/4 inches across; framed, it is 1 and 1/2 inches across. The porcelain itself is in Very Good Condition with no cracks or breaks, and very little wear or fading. The frame is in Good Condition, with more wear apparent. The porcelain is somewhat loose in the frame, but I have it displayed on its easel frame without difficulty. The porcelain is circa late 19th Century. I have had a jeweler examine it and the frame was dated as circa 1900, and the porcelain confirmed as 19th Century..
