We are offering this beautiful miniature hand painted portrait of a royal lady and signed by the artist. We are unable to identify the artist but have photographed the signature which is on the lower right side. Also we are not able to identify the royal lady, but she is certainly adorned and crowned with the most beautiful jewels, most likely rubies and diamonds. The painting was done on a natural wafer and framed in a lovely oval brass frame with a twisted rope edge and cluster of roses on top. It is backed with a burgundy velvet backing and has a small loop for hanging. The overall measurements are 3 1/8" X 3 3/4" and the site measurements are 2 1/2" X 3 1/2". This painting dates from the late 1800's and came from a collection gathered in France many decades ago. It is in excellent condition.
