This is a very early and pretty miniature portrait of a young girl. An American sepia bust portrait of a beautiful young girl in a white linen dress, with her hair in ringlets tucked behind her ears, an engaging directness to her look, circa 1840. Unsigned. In a later ambrotype metal mount. 3 1/4" x 2 3/4". In very good overall condition with a couple smudges to the background. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
