Very nice antique miniature portrait painting of Frederick II of Prussia. The painting measures approx. 2 1/2 inches X 3 1/2 inches. The frame measures approx. 4 1/8 inches X 4 7/8 inches. This painting is an early and well executed copy of the famous painting "Frederick the Great" made by Anton Graff in 1786. The painting is believed to be gouache watercolor on celluloid. The painting is under beveled glass bordered with floral bronze motif encased in period scrimshaw bone frame. Metal loop at top for hanging on wall. Old newspaper backing. Artwork dates to the mid 19th Century. Very nice antique condition. See photos. Displays exquisite!
