Wonderful folk art portrait miniature of a baby, in watercolor and pencil on card, dated 1849. What’s amazing about this little picture is that the baby is harnessed into the 19th century version of a Johnny Jump Up. She (her split-leg dress is pink so I’m assuming she’s a girl) hangs from a circular frame and presumably can jump and amuse herself. Red shoes, pink cheeks and dress. Signed “GC 1849); remnants of a label on the back say the same thing. Very good condition; frame is a ...

Delightful pair of English School portrait miniatures, depicting a lady and a gentleman, circa 1830. Both sitters wear black, he with a white stock, she with a white lace collar and what looks like a Wedgwood cameo! They are frame together in a red leather case. Condition is excellent. The case was probably originally just for her; it doesn’t close now with both portraits. A nearly illegible note on the back reads: “believe this to be Mi_ Bourne Rev C Griffiths wife Marcia Marie Bourne le...
