Wonderful portrait miniature on ivory of an elderly lady, by well-known Scottish artist Patrick McMor(e)land (1741 - died after 1809). The droll old lady wears a black cloak over a white fichu and matching lace bonnet -- her expression is sly and quizzical! The portrait is signed on the obverse with the monogram PM and is set in a gold bracelet clasp; the slides are missing. Measures 1 5/8". Very good condition; there is a small area of retouch to her left shoulder.
