Miniature Painting in Bone Frame-Woman in a Blue Velvet Jacket- Circa 1860-1870
A wonderful and amazing miniature portrait of a lady in a blue velvet jacket, with a big pinkish bow, and lace collar. She also retains her original paper backing.
She is probably German in origin and her original portrait was probably painted by Joseph Karl Stieler who was a 'star' during the 1820's to 1850's. She is hand-painted on an oval sliver of ivory and then framed in an intricately pieced bone frame. 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.
Place her on a dark painted wall or in a cuboard, on a candlestand or side table to bring out the color and beauty of this little minature portrait.
This miniature portrait measures 4" x 4.5".
