This beauty is in a rectangular burled wood frame with an inner black area and a dark metal ring surrounding the oval opening

Please note that there are a few more miniature portraits listed individually so please make sure to view them all as well.

The frame measures approx. 6 3/8" x 5 3/8". The oval of the portrait is approx. 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". The detailing is wonderful. She is dressed in a deep purple velvet gown and the neckline shows off a large golden brooch. Her curly brown hair frames her face wonderfully.

As this portrait is behind glass (please note the reflections) and sealed in the back it has never been removed and so is impossible to tell what the material is that it is painted on but we can tell that it is not ivory. Likely celluloid or possibly paper.

It is in excellent condition.

Due to a kind reader of my portrait listings pointing me to something called King Ludwig's 'Gallery of Beauties' it is a fair conclusion that this portrait was copied from one of those. Here is what Wikipedia says, (in part)about the Gallery of Beauties: '...is a collection of 36 portraits of the most beautiful women from the nobility and middle classes of Munich, Germany, painted between 1827 and 1850 (mostly by Joseph Karl Stieler, appointed court painter in 1820) and gathered by Ludwig I of Bavaria in the south pavilion of his Nymphenburg Palace in Munich. Two additional ones were created by Friedrich Dürck.
