Lovely antique French c.1810 Napoleon Bonaparte era hand painted portrait miniature, a pale beauty with red coral tiara or diadem, jet necklace with heart shaped locket and set in a unique carved wood frame! No signature on this one that I can see but what an interesting portrait, and that coral tiara is quite gorgeous (sure wish we had one of those to list right now). The frame also quite unique with carved wood accents and a profile bust of a woman in the lower right corner. Not sure if that was original to the frame but does add a bit of visual appeal for sure! Whether your interest is in the portrait miniature, or in having art work for your antique doll's house, you're sure to find this one of highest appeal.
Very good condition. There is a bit of what looks like moisture smudging on the painting panel itself, about 12 and 4 o'clock positions of the edge. As noted, the profile bust on the frame may or may not be original but in the same period style. The inner glass looked like a replacement when I removed the painting to scan it. See pictures for all measurements.
