This seemingly innocent looking semi nude young lady's portrait comes with a twist: her necklace is laced with a snake. She has beautifully done hair and her young body is beautiful. In the background is a detailed landscape with trees, hills and some buildings. Her hair is laced with jewels, indicating she is of a noble family. The portrait sits in a wood carved frame with a wine colored mat. The back is stiff card like material that bears an old inscription, which looks Spanish. It is unreadable to me. Condition of the miniature is great, very well done and executed, the frame has some cracks the bottom. No other defects.
Measurements are: miniature 2 1/2" by 2", frame is 5 1/2" by 3 3/4".
