This is a wonderful piece that has started with a transfer and then been hand painted giving it a very lifelike look. The artist has used a deep forest green background on the lower portion and a lighter green on the upper portion. Queen Louise is in a light colored gown and has a soft lavender scarf tied around her head and neck. The light colors against the background really pop. The Delinieres Company has chosen to frame it in a beautiful golden metal frame. The rim of the frame has a fleur de lis designs. The piece is in perfect condition.
