Miniature antique graphite and gouache Swiss scene

This delightful original miniature piece is done on a greenish grey Dobbs card. The embossed border, featuring grapes and lyres, acts as the frame. The scene is done "en grisaille" with very fine graphite work of the "L'Hospice du Grand St. Bernard." A white gouache is used to wonderful effect on the snowy mountains. The piece is signed "Emma Thalys" - perhaps a young lady on the Grand Tour? A wonderful piece of artwork for your doll tableaux or dollhouse decor!

Measurements: Approximately 3" tall x 4.5" wide

Condition: Very good condition in keeping with items that have been gently used and loved. Paper has age-appropriate signs of wear and some adhesive residue on back. Please see photographs for additional details and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
