C1829 Miniature of Flowers in Ormolu and Tortoiseshell Frame

$120.00 (SOLD)


This charming George IVth circular miniature painting of a floral spray is also signed and dated 1829, right at the end of the Georgian period.The diameter is 9.5 cm. The condition is not great at close inspection. There is a crack in the ivory(?) support for the painting. The tortoiseshell frame has been repaired. Nevertheless it is an evocative souvenir of a supremely glamorous age. Even the wonderfully educational TV show "Horrible History" features the "Gorgeous Georgians".
