A charming early to mid-19th century miniature depicting a young German gentleman in a dark suit and white shirt. His cheeks are pink and he carries a slightly sorrowful expression.

Intriguingly, on the back there’s some beautifully calligraphed script, which we believe is written in German. Perhaps a letter?
