An interesting naive miniature portrait of a young man, done in watercolor on natural wafer, and in a 14K gold locket. The bewhiskered sitter is wearing a black coat, white shirt and collar. The strong blue background is a wonderful contrast with the portrait. The painting is signed on the right side: "1816 Dixon."

The miniature is in excellent condition, with no issues. The gold case is in fine condition, but does have some unimportant dents on the reverse, above the glazed aperture. The case is 1 7/16" by 1 3/16".
