Antique miniature painting in heavy bronze frame circa 1840. This exquisite miniature features a beautiful woman with dark blonde hair that demonstrates the typical hairstyle of this era with a center part, bun in the bank and sausage curls around the front.

The frame itself is worth the purchase price. It is a heavy bronze and probably French in origin. It has a wreath finial and is intricately decorated. The back is also bronze as is the easel. There is some discoloration to the silk moire lining at the bottom as is shown in pictures.
