Adorable 19th C Portrait Miniature of Boy with Parrot
Unusual and adorable 19th century portrait miniature in watercolor on ivory of a little boy holding a parrot, probably French or German. The little boy has curly auburn hair and wears a blue jacket with rows of buttons and a wide lace collar. He holds a parrot (or another colorful green bird) in his hands. Gilt metal mount is set into a ebonized and turned wood frame with paper backing. Painting appears to be in good condition, but the glass is diseased and needs to be replaced. Frame is in good condition with some wear at the corner edges. Measures 5 1/8 by 5; sight size is 2 1/4 in diameter.
