- This early portrait on ivory is so beautifully painted, look at the detail, her clothes, her jewels. I just learned that women were often the artist's in these early portraits. Men got to do the big portraits. And that the women used ivory playing cards which would have been around the house. Painting on ivory was invented by a woman.
- Very nice old condition, old, not period frame.
- Measures 4 1/4" x 3 3/8".
- Inventory #A 54
