A charming and unusual Continental portrait miniature, painted in watercolors on natural wafer. Except for a very small number of miniaturists, and occasional examples by other miniaturists, the full profile format is quite rare. In this example the sitter is wearing a blue dress, gold earring, and a pearl necklace. Of obvious impression on the viewer is a very large white head covering, with yellow decoration, of a type that cannot quite be called a bonnet or hat.

The painting is presented in a metal case with the glazed reverse having interwoven plaits of hair. The painting is in good condition with no cracks, bowing, or restoration. The case, aside from some unevenness along the top right, is also in fine shape. Overall size of 2 3/8" by 2".
