19th-Century French School Portrait Of A Woman In Profile

19th-Century French School Portrait Of A Woman In Profile

A mid-19th-century French portrait of a woman in profile looking upwards. Her hair is styled into a bun and covers her ears, as per the fashion of the 1840s/50s.

What do you make of her expression? Could there be a glint in her eye and perhaps a little mischief?

The portrait is housed within a 19th-century gilded frame with decorative inner and outer borders.
