Antique Mathieu Deroche French Enamel Little Girl Portrait In Gilt Bronze Frame

This is an amazing antique miniature enamel on copper portrait of a young girl and signed on back by listed artist Mathieu Deroche (1866-1904). The portrait comes in its original gilt bronze frame with a fleur de lis pattern and measures about 3.75 x 3.25" and the oval enamel portrait is about 2" x 1". There is some discoloration towards the bottom of the frame lower middle and near the right corner possibly gilt loss. I have looped it and tried cleaning it but overall it is not too distracting. The beauty and detail on the little girl is just phenomenal. You see his work occasionally and it is mostly of adults, you just don't see the children that often. The back of the frame including the stand have some wear and scratched and there is a AF stamped on the stand. I would imagine this being late 19th century.
