A finely painted watercolor portrait of an extremely attractive,young, brown-haired woman. She is wearing a pink bonnet, and a black dress with a high lace collar. It is housed in its original foliate cast metal case. Further, the original red leather traveling case, with working clasp, is present, which is not often found.

The condition of the miniature is excellent, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. The locket itself, which can also be worn as a brooch, since a pin exists on the back, is also in excellent condition, with a glazed aperture on the reverse. The silk interior of the traveling case shows wear and deterioration The sight size of the painting is 2 1/2" by 2".
