This nicely drawn silhouette of a very elegant lady dates to around the 1840s and has been cut out from paper and applied on card. It has lost its frame but could be easily rehoused. Professional silhouette artists would often offer their services at parties and events at the time where the portrait could be created dramatically and at speed.
Please see images but it is offered in good condition. Dimensions of the card backing: height 8.5 cm or 3.3 inches; width 6.8 cm or 2.6 inches.
