Delightful, c.1900, miniature painting portrait of Marie Antoinette, the infamous pale-skinned queen in a magenta and white dress and elegant feathered hat. The painting is done in style of KPM and is of German origin. It is signed lower right by artist Dietrich. There are that many German artists bares the same last name that I will leave name speculation aside. It also marked "Make in Germany" verso.
The painting is done on porcelain and set into gilt bronze frame. The frame is the art work itself, believed to be of French origin. It is finished in very detailed pattern of berries and laurel leafs with bow at the bottom. It has easel and can rest on the desk instead of merely hanging on a wall.
Miniature measures 4.5" - 11.5 cm high; 3.5" - 9 cm wide.
Excellent condition, without any damage, apart from light wear to the gilding on the frame.
