Exceptionally well-painted & sensitive portrait miniature of a girl, possibly a shepherdess, wearing what appears to be traditional Tyrolean, Austrian or German attire complete with wooden flute tucked beneath the collar. The portrait has been painted on an oval porcelain plaque with'15' impressed to rear. The plaque is unglazed and held within what appears to be a faux ivory frame with incised decoration. Frame: 11 x 14 cm (roughly 4.25 x 5.5 inches).
Oval window: 8.4 x 6.4 cm (roughly 3.25 x 2.5 inches). Partial loss to backing paper. Some splitting and discolouration to frame, though all structurally sound. Few small scratches to portrait surface.Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
