Here is an antique portrait miniature of a lady with short dark brown hair, she is wearing a white dress, no jewellery, and she is posing for side view. She has brown eyes and porcelain looking skin.
It comes in a red leather case that has two hook clasps to secure. Please note the protective glass is loose inside. I took the portrait out to see behind..It has no writing or signatures. It is on period wafer. No signature that I can see. This will have been admired many times probably in a soldiers pocket of his loved one.... The case is warped from age and drying out. The portrait measures approx 71mm x 58mm approx just under 3 inches x 2. The portrait is in good condition, the case has frayed silk and is warped so it does not close properly, and the hinge is pulling out of the leather so the case is not as good as it could be. The interior glass is loose. Once an item is the in the postal system any delays are out of my cont rol. See the date it was sent.
