No condition issues, with a diameter of 2 3/4" and a framed size of 5 1/2" by 5 1/4".

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: Mlle Hyacinth Mercier worked as a miniaturist in Paris, living at 27 rue Neuve Saint Rochet. She exhibited at the Salon in 1808 and 1810. Her technique most often employed cross-hatched stippled lines, as was the case with others influenced by the work of Louis François Aubry, a well known and important presence in French art at the time. Mercier's biography appears in volume 3 of Schidlof's work on European miniatures.
