A classic example of a Moses B. Russell portrait on natural wafer, fully signed and dated on the backing card. The sitter is a young woman with brown sausage curls and blue eyes. Obviously from a well-to-do family, she is wearing a blue dress with lace edged sleeves, a cameo brooch at the bodice, a gold ring, and a long gold chain, and has a mink wrap on her lap. The colors are vivid, with the dark mauve chair contrasting nicely with the blue dress.

The miniature is in a 6 3/8" by 5 3/8" period gilded frame which has some unimportant wear. The miniature, which has a sigh size of 4" by 3", is in beautiful condition, with no chips, cracks, paint loss, or restoration.
