RESERVED - Portrait Of A Female Quaker Holding Spectacles
A naive 19th-century half-length portrait of a seated female, believed to be a quaker, wearing a white bonnet and a modest black dress.
In her right hand, she's holding a small red book, likely to be the Bible. While in her left, she's clutching a pair of thin-rimmed spectacles.
