Circle of Niklas Lavreince LAFRENSEN (1737-1807)
Swedish School, Dated 1797, Silver Frame.
A finely painted miniature of a gentleman in profile, circle of Lafrensen. Mounted in a silver frame, with a cross hair back and memorial plaque verso. Inscribed with the sitters dates 1754 -1797. Probably painted post mortem, although the plaque with the sitter’s details could be a later addition. Bears a metal collector’s tag.
The miniature itself is in excellent condition. The inside of the glass is dirty and the silver case is tarnished in places but would clean up. The seed pearls verso are loose.
