Fabulous French bronze hand mirror mounted with a portrait miniature of Marie Antoinette. From the famous painting "Marie Antoinette with a Rose", the artist has wonderfully captured the beauty and expression of this painting in miniature. The bronze mirror is heavily detailed and has a nice antique patina which could be polished if so desired. The beveled mirror is in superb condition for its age with only a minor scratch. There is a very old stable crack in the ivory (shown in the last photo) about 1" long. It is noticeable only in bright light and if you "know it's there". I would say the painting is in "good" antique condition dating to period 1860-1890. The mirror measures 9.25" long by 3" wide. Painting measures 3.24" by 2.5" wide.
