We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a FABULOUS MINIATURE ANTIQUE FRAMED EMBROIDERED CHILD PORTRAIT!
With wonderful PROVENANCE originating from the MARY MERRITT DOLL MUSEUM, this EXQUISITE MINIATURE is a DELIGHT to behold, depicting an ENCHANTING little girl, making it the PERFECT accessory item for display with antique dolls!
The picture is in WONDERFULLY PRESERVED condition, boasting beautiful PASTEL COLORS in tiny hand sewn stitches using silk thread. The theme is a beautiful little girl sitting outside in her white FANCY DRESS against a lovely PASTORAL SCENE next to a tall tree, clasping her hands in calming repose. The WORKMANSHIP and detail is AMAZING; at first we thought this was hand painted until we got a closer look and saw it was actually tiny SILK STITCHES that defined the picture! The embroidery looks like it was done on a cream MOIRE TAFFETA fabric (some slight staining on the background), and the picture is showcased in a simple but lovely antique miniature BRASS FRAME with original glass. The frame has a TOP LOOP for easy hanging, and the back is made of rich BURGUNDY VELVET fabric.
The total dimensions fo the frame including it's loop is 3 7/8" tall by 2 7/8" wide, with the portrait itself measuring 3 1/2" tall by 2 5/8" wide. We like to show these wonderful miniature pictures displayed with antique dolls, so our 13" antique French Fashion is doing the honors; also a FABULOUS backdrop accessory for a DOLLHOUSE or ROOMBOX vignette!
