Antique Miniature Portrait Oil Painting
Antique hand painted oval miniature portrait painting. Very finely painted miniature original oil on card of an elderly gentleman dating to the late 18th or early 19th century as suggested by his clothing. This elderly gentle is depicted in fine clothing, plump and pale face and well kept hair which all suggest wealth as does the fact that he could afford to employ an artist to depict his likeness in miniature. This was most likely a gift for either a wife or daughter to have on their person when traveling. Superbly framed in an oval gilt frame with convex glass surrounded by a blackened wooden walnut mount. The brass catch is decorated with an acorn and leaves delicately on top.
Unfortunately this miniature cannot be attributed to any particular artist as the information on the back is illegible. A partial date of 1824 is apparent on the back paper.
A fabulous addition to your fine miniature art collection, Georgian or Victorian home decor.
Miniature painting measures 3" long by 2.25" wide, the frame is 5" long by 4" wide and weighs 4oz.
This miniature painting is in good condition with some signs of use commensurate with age (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
