SALE Purchased from a KY Estate where there were so many prints, pictures, paintings, on the wall, my eyes went to these two Miniature Ebony Hand Rubbed Finish Wood Framed Portraits or Transfer prints on a Celluloid type background. The Victorian lady with a large flower decorated hat and tight rolled curls is a familiar old picture, and she has such a stately, look of a Matriarch.Her makeup is perfect, and she has oval gold hoop earrings. Her gown has a very low cut bodice. The Valiant Man has a long antique rifle over his shoulder, a high ruffled collar, and a large feathered hat. I do not find any signature on either picture, but they are from famous prints of long ago that you may have seen actual painted portraits of before.
These round frames have an antiqued bronze look to them, and just around the portrait, there's a ridge of a gold beaded like design. Each has a little metal attached hanger attached, and on the back they are stamped with a patent number...it looks like 1951, but it is hard to read all of of it since the gold plating is a little worn on the hanger. If that is a year they were made, it would make these about 64 years old. The tag on the back of one reads: "This frame made of SOLID WOOD with special hand rubbed EBONY FINISH."
If you love the look of antique portraits, but don't wish to pay the price for the actual painted portraits, here's your opportunity to own these great old miniatures. They measure 4 1/4" across and are nearly 1" deep. The only wear I see at all is on the edge of the lady portrait frame, and it could very easily be touched up. Actually, I think the picture exaggerates the flaw.
I am selling both pictures as found together. If for some reason you are only interested in one, I might consider breaking up the pair, but this listing is for BOTH pictures.
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. I bought more miniature pictures from this same estate, as well as already having some Florentine Gold Gilded framed plaques and religious prints. They all go well together in a wall grouping, so please take a look.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless YoU! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
