A superb, signed example of American miniature portraiture in the waning years of the art, circa the turn of the 19th century! The artist, C. S. Wiltschek, painted several portraits of the Duke family (as in Duke University) which hang in the Lilly Library at the university. The sitter is a regal woman, in pearl, beads and pearl earrings. The gilt metal frame is beautifully chased and enameled, and rests in it’s original leather box (a tad musty). Very good condition; slightly dusty. Measures 3 5/8” by 2 7/8”.
