19th century miniature painting of lady on milk glass. Finely detailed portrait in tones of grey and sepia with a hint of rose and blue gives an almost monochromatic effect. Her lace and areas of her clothes are highlighted in white. She has a delicate face and facial expression. Milk glass is an uncommon medium for miniature portraits and gives a different feel than other materials. She is housed in an old metal frame with a velvet easel back and a loop for hanging. There is some loss of the gold finish to her frame.

Date: Late 19th Century

Marks: None

Size: 8 inches by just under 3 1/2 inches

Condition: No chips, cracks or repairs to milk glass. No loss of paint. Some loss of gold to metal frame. See photos of back, miniature stands but the top of the easel stand has pulled away on one corner. It is 80% intact and works as a stand.
