A charming German school portrait of a demure young lady holding a flower. This beautiful piece dates to the early part of the 19th-century and certainly tugs at the heartstrings. It was probably once hanging in a family home alongside portraits of siblings and the girl’s parents.
The portrait is housed within a later frame.
