A charming miniature portrait of two beautiful children, painted on natural material by William Egley. Housed in what is probably the original bronze frame.

Both the painting and the frame are in excellent condition, with no issues. The painting is 1 3/4" in diameter, and the frame is 2 7/8".

Biographical Note: William Egley (1798–1870), was born in Doncaster, England, and moved shortly after to Nottingham. Originally working in a publishing house and bookshop, he had developed an interest in painting and, without any professional teaching, he succeeded in finishing two pictures, the portraits of Colonel Ogleby and of Richard Yates, the actor, which were received and exhibited by the Royal Academy in 1824. From that time until 1869 he was a constant exhibitor, sending, in all, over 100 miniatures to the Academy exhibitions, two pictures to the British Institution, and 6 to the Suffolk Street Gallery. He was twice married, and by his first wife left a son, William Maw Egley, a painter of historical subjects and a regular exhibitor.

Egley was very successful in portraying children, and always in high demand. His works are in the collections of many museums.
