Beautifully painted scrimshaw battle scene with soldiers on horseback. Executed on a thin piece of bone on a board backing hand decorated with ink and gold trim. The frame is Persian inlaid wood. There is a paper card on the back that indicates the date 5/17/88, which I believe is the date the painting was framed, not the date of the scrimshaw painting itself, which I believe to be older.

Measurements: Frame 6 x 3 1/2 inches...

Lovely miniature hand painted portrait of a lady. Appears to be oil on ivorine and is signed (although the signature is not legible to me). The lady has beautiful blue eyes and curly brown hair. She is holding a pink rose.

The oval frame, which has a ring hanger on the back, is gold gilt brass. There is a blue and silver label on the back with a logo and C. Frederick Faude.

This is probably French or Italian from the early 1900s and was sold as a gallery piece for tourists...
