An exceptional example of a watercolor on natural organic material American miniature portrait painting of a handsome boy with blue eyes. The sitter is dressed in a black cravat and coat, with a light tan waistcoat, and a white shirt with a stickpin. Additionally, the reverse of the case is very unusually treated, with white glass painted with a lavish oval of flowers surrounding the initials "HA" done in black calligraphy. E. Grosvenor Paine provenance.

The miniature and the case are in excellent condition, with no problems or restoration. Sight size is 2 1/2" by 2", and the case size is 2 5/8" by 2 1/4".
