A beautifully limned portrait, done in watercolor on on natural wafer, of an Austrian or German soldier. The blue-eyed blond haired sitter is wearing a deep blue and red uniform jacket with a braided upright collar in red with white stripes. The miniature is in its original bronze brooch pin, which has wonderful detailing. The reverse has a glazed aperture.
Condition is excellent, with a very slight amount of rubbing at the very edge at 3:00 o'clock, but with no bowing, chips, cracks, or restoration. Sight size is 1 1/2" by 1 1/4", and the overall size is 2 1/8" by 1 7/8".
