Lovely antique miniature, fine eglomise technique, reverse painting and gilding on glass, of a lovely lady, in beautiful clothing and detail. Her face is lovely; and notice the finely painted folds on her sleeves, truly a miniature masterpiece. Not perfect, we do see a little aging, not true cracking,but more of a wearing of the paint inside the glass, please use the magnification tool to look at the chin area, it shows up when close to the item, but not noticeable when you are far away. She is in an old possibly original framing of a brass tone metal with gold gilt now darkened with age. It measures 3 & 1/2" across, and the frame is marked Royal M Mfg Co".
