Miniature Ornate Filigree Framed Portrait Print of Josephine of France, sold as a souvenir long ago, with the original domed glass. These small miniature frames made of gilded filigree metal, with their lovely portrait prints,were meant to emulate the more costly hand painted portraits of the nobility of France and other European nations.
This one is Josephine of France, wife of Napoleon. With her soft rose dress and lacy sleeves, jewel studded crown and necklace she is regal and lovely. The portrait is "signed" but that is because it's copied from a painting. The frame has patina and aging, what you want to see in these older pieces. The back is covered with wine colored velvet. A sweet piece to hang amidst some other paintings, or in a little spot that will be just perfect for a small scaled touch of France.
