An extremely early portrait done in watercolor on wafer. Miniatures from this period are very uncommon and highly desirable. The sitter, set against a blue and cloud filled sky, is wearing a blue uniform jacket with gilt-edged black lapels, and a breast piece displaying the two headed Prussian eagle.

Condition is excellent, with no issues to speak of. The Sight size is 1 7/8" by 1 1/2", and the size of the original bronze case is 2 1/8" by 1 7/8".
