The detail of this portrait is exceptional. Sadly, I cannot say if this is a painting, photograph, or print. I have taken it out of the case and the image is on paper. The paper, mat, and glass are sandwiched and sealed. In checking with a loop, I still cannot tell. It is lovely. It is in a pressed paper case with the appearance of leather. The hinge and double clasps are intact. The case measures 3 3/4" x 4 5/8". Very good condition. A previous owner put a stick on the back of the case. When removed, the surface was damaged.
