Wax portrait miniature of Julius Caesar. The wax portrait is 19th century and has been re-framed sometime in the 20th century. The profile is to the right and has been done by a very skillful artist. The portrait is mounted on black velvet which gives it a rich look. An interesting textured paper serves as a background against a black shadow box frame. The frame measures 9.25" high by 8.25" wide. The portrait including the black mount measures 4.25" by 3.5". The miniature has a faint hairline crack across his neck (see photo) which is hard to see. I did not notice it until I was photographing it under bright light. A hard-to-find piece.
