A delightful portrait miniature in watercolor on ivory of Georgiana Charlotte Booker, by British artist William Smith, circa 1775. Georgina wears a white dress with a pink waistband; her blond hair curls around her shoulders. William Smith, who worked in Scotland and London, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1774 and in 1802. This portrait is signed “SMITH” in capital letters. The large greenish area to her right may well be original. Set in a later gilt metal frame with a glazed silk reverse. Great condition; slightly faded. Measures 1 1/2".
