Antique French Portrait Miniature of an Aristocratic Lady In Gilt Metal Mount (Code 2222)
A French portrait miniature of a wealthy or titled lady. The style dates around 1780-1800 with a very formal rendering and stiff pose and hair.

There is a suspension loop to the top. The rear is open and you can see the card backer and paper print to the frame.
Painting in good order, some flecks of dirt on the glass internally which could of course be removed. Some shrinkage splits in the frame covering. The back is open as you can see.
