This antique hand painted miniature portrait is painted on cardboard backed celluloid. The back of the velvet backing has a label which reads:" M. Tomlin, 3 Lancaster Place, Blackburn.(Scotland) Also Janet and NFS". The house is still there, which gives it a nice provenance.
The painting is in good condition with some signs of wear when examined out of the frame: the painting has some color variations that may not have been in the original painting. It is housed in an oval gold metal frame with a hanging loop. The easel is for display only, not part of this listing.
Measurements are: 5" by 3" and 1/4" thick.
