Portraits in miniature continue to fascinate us centuries after they were painted. This is such a exquisite French hand painted portrait miniature of a beautiful woman of the nobility. It is inside a gilt ornate border under glass in the original black ebonized wood frame. The painting is superb, with impressive fine details, the dress of this beauty is accented with fine luxury quality lace, she wears an ermine stole, pearl drop earrings, a pearl necklace accented with a cameo intaglio pendant. In her hair, she wears pink feathers and pearls. Her hair is so exquisitely painted, with great attention to detail, it frames her lovely face.
The painting is signed by the artist next to her shoulder. A highly collectible and decorative addition to your antique paintings and a delight to display with your fashion prints, or antique dresses, hats, parasols and all things delicious in your dressing room or boudoir. The wood frame has a gilt hanger on the back, this is a stunner. From an estate, this is heirloom quality.
