Portrait Of A Lady With A Floral Lace Cap

DESCRIPTION

A large half-length Victorian portrait depicting a young lady in a beautifully decorated floral lace cap.

By the 1860s, women tended to wear dress caps and bonnets that sat back on the head and were less obtrusive than earlier versions - ”no longer bonnets but plaques of lace trimmed with the tiniest of flowers” (Ladies’ Treasury, 1866).

In this portrait, the sitter is wearing a highly fashionable lace cap that’s been carefully decorated with red roses and green leaves. She’s also wearing a long gold chain that extends to her waist.

The painting is housed within a contemporary black frame with gold trim.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
