A very finely painted American miniature portrait on natural organic material. The sitter is a blue-eyed gentleman in a black coat and tie. A multi-colored background nicely complements the beautiful and original cast foliate case. The rear of the case has a glazed aperture, but no hair present.

Condition is excellent. What appears to be a small bit of damage on the sitter's left eye is a scratch on the glass. The sight size is 2 5/8" by 2 1/8", and the overall size is 2 13/16" by 2 3/8".

I did not remove this miniature from the case and do not know if there is artist or sitter information on it.
