Presenting a skillfully executed 19th century wax profile portrait of a Georgian lady. The portrait is set within a period ebonized frame, that features an ornamental cast metal thistle-shaped hanger and gilt edging around the portrait opening.

An iconic classical decoration at a distance, this piece only improves upon close examination, when minute details such as the draping of the bow on her dress and the flowers set into her braided hair can be appreciated, and well as the sensitive depiction of the beauty and serenity of the sitter.

Measures 7 1/2" H ( including the extended thistle hanger), 5 1/2" wide, 1/4" deep. Wax portrait area measures approximately 4 1/2" high by 3 1/2" wide. Some normal minor age-related wear to gilt, frame surface and oxidization to hanger
