An antique French diamond shaped box accented with scroll work. The top lid bears a signed miniature portrait. The portrait most likely is of a Royal Lady based on her clothing and hair. She wears a black hat with pink accents with a pink rose pinned to the lace shawl around her shoulders. The portrait is signed and appears to be Sirerac.
French, Napoleon III, 1870
