A beautiful mid-19th-century portrait depicting a lady with her arm resting on a table with a bouquet. She’s wearing the latest fashion of the 1860s, which consisted of dresses with tight bodices and plenty of white lace. There’s also a prominent cameo proudly attached to her waist.
The portrait is housed within an ornate gilded frame with swept corners and elaborate foliate ornamentation.
