From the Marcolini period c1790 and absolutely stellar condition and ultra fine miniature painting. Amazingly detailed portrait center medallion featuring a pastoral scene with fantastic colors and quality as I hope the photographs can capture. A magnifying glass can be used to catch the amazing detail.....how they painted such scenes 200 years ago is amazing. The border is a rich burgundy and platinum while the medallion is surrounded by a fine gilt design. The worst I could say is there is slight wear to the gilt on the right of the medallion otherwise this is fantastic. Measures 8 1/8" and is signed appropriately on back as shown. A great piece to admire. Reduced, and reduced again.......please look at the center medallion, just fantastic quality!
