A finely done American miniature portrait, on natural wafer, of a handsome boy. The sitter has short chestnut hair and blue eyes, and is wearing a black coat and cravat, and a white pleated shirt with stickpin.

The overall size of the gilt foliate frame, which has a window on the reverse revealing a plait of hair, is 2 5/8" by 2 1/4". Condition of the painting and the frame is excellent, with no cracks, bowing, or restoration.
