A miniature portrait painting on ivory depicting Maria José de Sajonia.
Frame: brass and flat glass. 11x8cm, painting 8x7cm.
Ivory portraits were very fashionable during the 18th and 19th century, however the combination of watercolours and an oily and unabsorbent surface demanded a preparation of the surface that took many decades to develop.
The item was produced before 1947, and is therefore in compliance with European Union regulations on ivory trade. The item comes with a certificate which will be sent to the buyer.
