This hand painted miniature portrait is painted on a thin piece of celluloid and probably made in Italy. We have another one just like it that has been examined out of the frame and it has it under the cardboard backing. This lovely piece is signed and has a great wood frame. The lady in question is very well depicted and has a somewhat wistful expression. The piece is signed illegibly. The condition is very good, as shown the paper backing has not been removed to examine the portrait outside of the frame. The frame has some faint abrasions to the front.
Measurements are: 6 1/8” by 5 1/8” and ½” thick.
