Lovely collection of four 19th century French portrait miniatures depicting famous aristocratic ladies of the day each in its own period brass frame mounted on a velvet backboard and framed in an octagonal gilt wood frame. 3 of the portraits are painted on wafers and the fourth is hand painted fired porcelain. The 3 wafer portraits are signed although I cannot make out the signatures. Measurements: Framed measures 12in x 12in, portraits measures 3.25-4in heights x about 2.5in width including their frames. Images are about 2in diameter. Condition: left most portrait is well worn as if someone tried to clean it with too strong a solvent, the other 3 are in excellent vintage condition.
