If you are one of those world class doll collectors who fit out doll houses in antique furniture and paintings, this is perfect for you. The painting looks like an Old Master - perhaps Flemish, and the frame is superb, making it one that would be fabulous in a doll's vignette room placement as well as centerpiece in a collection of portrait miniatures. I'm sure it's after (copy of) some Old Master painting or other, but I didn't immediately recognize it. Does anyone out there? One might think of Rembrandt,and it has that feel, but I don't recognize the actual painting. Miniatures were done in late 1700s to mid-1800s for the early Grand Tour tourist trade, and were popular like this one as souvenirs of the original art in museums they'd visit. This one is painted in oil on copper panel or plaque, which is rather unusual. We would date it between 1810-1850. Same for frame, which is in excellent form. The frame is wood with carved wood, applied gesso and a fabulous heavy gilt finish. The painting is matted as you see it. Very good to excellent condition for age and type. The painting is in oil on copper plaque, no damage at all and is a superb small painting. matted and mounted in a valuable antique frame of wood with applied gesso and overall gilt parcel finish that is in fine form. Excellent overall, and hanging in my living room even now.

Shipping and Handling Policy:
You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us.

The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction.
Insurance has been eliminated as an option by , forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replacable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks!
Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is recieved (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it.
