$129.00Price

A wonderful and amazing miniature portrait of a lady in a gold coronet and dark blue dress with a string of pearls around her neck. She was hand-painted on an oval sliver of ivory and then framed in an intricately pieced bone frame. She also retains her original paper backing. They were all the rage in the mid to late 1800's and would grace the walls of middle and upper class homes. They were copies of well-know real life portraits of famous people and were purchased and displayed to show the owner's good taste in home decoration. The second picture in this listing shows this miniature portrait on my living room wall along with four others that were part of the collection I purchased. This portrait is the top left  in picture #2 of this listing. There is one more miniature portrait offered in this update. Place her on a dark wall or in a cuboard or on a candlestand or side table to bring out the color and beauty of this little minature portrait.

This miniature portrait measures 3.5" x 4".
