An interesting watercolor on organic material portrait of a woman in a white dress with a blue bow in her hair. Although she is not the most gorgeous sitter I've encountered, the artist has set her off beautifully against a light blue background, causing the viewer to focus on the sitter's eyes and somewhat wistfully contemplative expression.

The painting is in excellent condition, with no cracks, bowing, or restoration. It is set in its original gold brooch, and would be a true conversation piece to wear. The sight size is 2 1/16" by 1 5/8", and the overall size is 2 1/4" by 1 7/8".
