A beautiful miniature on ivory portrait painting of a young woman sitting in a red chair. The sitter is dressed in a black dress. wearing a lace cap embroidered with roses,a lace collar and fichu. The finely limned details of this painting also include a brooch and gold chain. The painting dates to the 1845-1850 period.

The original casework on this miniature, which tests at 14K gold, is superb, with the reverse beautifully engraved with a foliate motif, and having the legend "??R from F??" inscribed in a shield-shaped cartouche. The inscription is not rubbed, but the letters are done in such a fancy style that they are hard to decipher.

Sight size is 2 3/16" by 1 11/16". The miniature and the case are in superb condition, with no chips, cracks, paint loss, bowing, dents, or restoration.
