Charmingly naive, a scene from a Jane Austen novel, this portrait miniature, watercolor and gouache on parchment, of a beautiful brunette features exquisite detail: the jewelry, the textiles and lace -- particularly the lace shawl and East Indian turban --, the workbasket on the table, the wainscoting and room furnishings, ... Dating from around 1800, the image, under the original glass, is approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter, the ebonized frame is five inches by 5-1/2 inches. It is in fresh, perfect condition, either British or American.
