This is a portrait miniature of Lord Nelson, the famed English Naval Hero of the Battle of Trafalgar. It was done sometime after is death. I am placing it circa 1880-90. It has been professionally cleaned and restored. inside the frame, the piece measures a little under 3 and 1/2 inches North to South and 2 and 1/4 inches East to West. Framed the piece measures 4 and 3/4 inches North to South, and 3 and 3/4 inches East to West. In the photo, a few little white marks appear. Remember I took this outside with a macro lens. I can't see any little white dots at all without a magnifying glass. This is a wonderful piece, for lovers of maritime history, or collectors of Nelson.
