We cannot help but wonder if this charming lady was of royal backround. Whatever the case may be, she was kept with care and beautifully preserved. The hint of a smile on her face tells that she was enjoying the process of being the subject for the artist.

The painting retains strong coloration and the glass cover has protected the surface of the art. The engraved gold case tests 15K. However, during this period gold measurement was seldom exact.

The "T" pin and "C" clasp are original. The pin is steel--typical of the period. Beautifully rendered hair is encased on the back and a chain and safety pin are complete.

We are taken by the coral necklace at her throat and a bit of coral earring making an appearance as well. The bodice of her dress shows the sheen of satin.

There is a tiny spot on the glass cover and a small dent on the back. Neither harms the overall quality of the piece. The miniature measures 1 inch top to bottom and 7/8 inch side to side.

Truly a splendid example of early miniature artistry.
