Guest Book

A fine miniature portrait painting on organic wafer of a woman, seated in a chair, wearing mid 19th century attire. There is a trade card for the painter, Otto Merkel, enclosed under the rear backing paper.

The painting was mounted using archival supplies, and put in a beautiful wood frame.

The sight size of this artwork is 4" by 3 1/8", and the framed size is 7 5/8" by 6 3/4". Condition is excellent, with no cracks, chips, paint loss, or restoration.

Note: Little is known about Otto Merkel. He worked in New York and Philadelphia in the second half of the 19th century, and was commissioned to do portraits for many well-known people.
