A Charming 19th C Signed Portrait Miniature of a Young Girl
Please refer to our stock # a1869 when inquiring.
This is a rather large portrait miniature done in body color and watercolor on ivory. The signature on the lower right is "P(or T)ouktuz Sta??er". The signature and attire indicate the painting was probably done by an Eastern European or Russian artist. The subject of this 19th century work is an attractive young girl from a wealthy family, based on the expensive clothing (the fur coat, gloves, hat, and boots).
The condition of the painting is excellent, with some scattered black specks that are much less apparent in person than the photo indicates. The gilt bronze frame is also in excellent condition. Sight size is 4 3/8" by 2 3/8" and the frame size is 5 5/8" by 3 1/4".
NOTE: This miniature was sold to its previous owner for $1450 on eBay in 2000. An expert dealer in works of this type was an underbidder at $805.
