Offered for sale is a 19th century hand painted miniature watercolor portrait depicting a beautiful young woman. She is adorned in a white gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline and blue velvet ribbons cinching her waist and arms. Her hair is coiffed in corkscrew curls framing her lovely face. She casually holds a lorgnette that is hung from her neck by a gold chain. She appears to be framed in a picture window with a shawl draped over one arm.
The painting is finely executed; the artist captured a playful mood with the subject, one not to be taken seriously but enjoyed.
The painting is in excellent condition, not visibly signed. It is set into a wooden frame with suspension ring and velvet matting. The painting is protected with a convex glass cover, original to the piece.
Size of Frame: 5 7/8” Height x 4 7/8” Width
