A beautiful, small hand painted portrait of a lady under glass set in Hobe with filigree metal work over the faceted crystals. It is signed on the reverse Hobe. There are 3 drop crystal on the bottom. It measures almost 2 1/2" to include the middle drop and just under 2" across. The portrait is about 3/4". In good vintage condition with very minimal wear only noticed with a loop. French-American in origin, circa 1940s. The portrait miniatures by Hobe are an especially favorite of mine and some other collectors. This one is especially nice since the paintings has such a pretty face (please ignore the white dot on the right side, it is a reflection of the flash from the camera and is not on the painting). More images are always available upon request.
