Lovely hand painted oval miniature portrait of a lady. She has long, dark brown curls, and is wearing a peasant style blouse, with a hat and what appears to be a matching blue cloak off her shoulders. The inner frame measures 3.5 inches by 2.75 inches, and the outer frame measures 7.5 inches tall by 6 inches wide. There is convex glass over the portrait. This lovely little portrait is in excellent condition, and is unsigned. There are a couple of spots on the bottom of the outer brass frame, which is otherwise in good condition.
When I purchased this portrait, it came in the small inner frame, with an outer frame that was too damaged to repair. So, the outer frame and surrounding fabric were replaced. At the time I purchased it, I was able to verify that it was celluloid. The portrait dates to the late Victorian period, while the outer frame dates to the mid 20th century.
