A late 18th century English School portrait miniature in watercolor on card, attributed to Charles Shirreff, of a lady with a white scarf wound artfully through her powdered hair.

Set into a later composition traveling case decorated on both sides with a vase of flowers. The whole is in very good condition; some dirt under glass. Measures 2” by 1 7/8”.
