Lovely early 19th century antique miniature portrait painting under glass of a well-to-do lady wearing a fur stole and earrings, with a yellow rose at her bust. Her hairstyle suggests a date around the 1830s. The portrait is signed, but difficult to read, looks like Dupay. The intricate frame is octagonal and has narrow strips of bone around the edges. It is wood with an overlay of tortoise shell and metal scroll work. There is some lifting of the shell, the bone edge, and the metal. It has a hanging loop on top. There used to be an easel leg on back which is now gone. Frame is 5 3/4" x 4 3/4". Oval inset is 3 1/2" x 2 5/8". Beautiful old piece.
Ships with Signature Confirmation.
