This is a finely done miniature painting on ivory of a very attractive young woman. The artist has taken great pains with all the details. His depiction of her braided and sausage-curled hair, her earrings, necklace (every link was done individually), and pendant, the lacework, and even the stitching work on her dress, to say nothing of her facial features, bespeaks a talented hand.
The painting, which has a sight size of 2 3/4" by 2 1/4", is in excellent condition, with no bowing, cracks, paint loss, or restoration. It has been put in a later frame, which also in in fine condition, and measures 6 3/8" by 5".
A truly beautiful work of a beautiful woman, and an asset to any display.
