A lovely and old miniature portrait of a young girl beautifully framed. We were originally told this was painting on ivory, but our inspection leads us to believe these are fine old prints or litho that have been hand embellished. There is an artist signature on the left, we think it is Milly, but not sure. The art is under a slight bubble glass with brass frame surrounding the oval art, set in a faux ivory inner frame with a gold gilt metal outer frame with very orante filigree work and fancy corners. The back has the original easel for standing the art, with the easel market Brevettato, and there is an old label "Fabrica Marcos (unreadable name), then Salon Paris. This beauty measures 5 & 3/4" tall and 5 & 1/2" wide and is in good condition. There is a slight curved piece of metal on the top from which a cord could be hung for wall mounting if desired.
