No reproduction without prior written consent. We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. A splendid 18th century portrait, colorful and tiny, and in the original 18k rose gold-faced oval mount which has been further framed in a larger and slightly later wood frame, brass round mat and an inner panel of wood.The combination resulting in a very appealing piece, and way to show off this exquisite woman's mid-1700s portrait. I took all the photos through the cover glass so slight glare of the photo lighting here or there. The painting, a face only 1/2 from her chin to hairline, is a study in pastel palette which compliments her so well. I do not see a visible signature but sometimes when we open these up there is a signature at outer perimeter. The double frame on this display piece is sealed from back, has a very clean cover glass, and presented me with little reason to take it all apart. I do not have an ID.
Might you recognize her as an historical figure? Or is she simply an elegant Royalist, Louis XV to XVI? Unusual to have rose gold. And I apologize, I tested it and then neglected to wipe it clear of film again. It is of high shine now.
Very good to excellent condition thoughout, with very tiny exception of 2 very small bends in outer perimeter of the 18k rose gold (pink gold) facing on the oval mount. Beyond those tiny pushes (not missing, just pushed toward back), the balance of this one is just top form. This is the earliest and perhaps theonly rose gold facing plaque (attached to the basic brass oval mount) we've ever found. Such a compliment to her portrait's palette!
