A fine mid-19th-century oil on canvas depicting a lady wearing a silk shawl and lace bonnet decorated with roses.

This beautiful little painting captures the essence of the sitter so well. Her eyes convey a kindness and there’s the inkling of a smile.

During the 1860s, bonnets were often decorated with an array of fancy ribbons, bows and flora. In this particular example, the lady appears to be wearing a pink and an orange rose on her left side.

The painting is housed within what is probably its original gilded frame.
