Beautiful and rare miniature portrait of a noble young lady wearing a gorgeous and quite elaborate golden yellow gown with French gold lame lace, a small crown in her hair, drop earrings and gorgeous jewels. I know she is a royal, I just can't quite place her. She is exceptionally well painted on a thin wafer by an accomplished artist, the portrait is signed above her left hand. An unusual lovely portrait, she has a sweet face and a soft pink blush on her cheeks.
The painting is framed with an ornate brass floral inset, the paneled cream colored frame is in good antique condition, an oval in a darker color really makes this stand out and enhances the beauty of this heirloom treasure. I believe that the tortoise shell is "faux". A gorgeous addition to your collection of miniature paintings, she is especially collectible.
