Fabulous jeweled frame with porcelain plaque miniature signed

Simply the BEST!! A fabulous jeweled frame containing a beautiful portrait miniature on porcelain of Princess Lambelle. The ornate gilt metal frame is inset with various paste jewels set in filigree work at each corner. A gilt metal cameo graces the top along with a ribbon and floral garland set with stones. The black background on the frame, I believe, is of gutta- percha. Encircling the miniature are vibrant blue stones. Now for the miniature which is exquisite. A portrait of Princess Lambelle is wonderfully rendered on an oval porcelain plaque. Clearly by an extremely talented hand. It is signed on the reverse "Lambelle". The back of the frame has been papered. Frame measures 6.25" tall by 4.5" wide. Portrait measures 3.25" by 2.5". For the serious collector, a superb piece not to be missed.
