Fabulous Painting. Portrait of Lady in Stunning Frame.
This is a beautifully painted miniature portrait of a lady, dressed in finery with plumes in her hair, pearls, earrings, cameo necklace and an ermine shawl.
This young woman would have been very well to do. Her dress and complexion were the height of respectability and good standing. She no doubt had many suitors!
The quality of the painting is reflected in the frame. A wooden base, painted to resemble tortoiseshell and then overlayed with decorative metal, finished with gold coloured, embellished edging metal. This creates an opulent and luxurious feel without being too ostentatious and detracting from the painting.
Condition is excellent. Please see the photographs for clarification.
Measures: 6 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches
