Rare Top Quqlity Antique Enamel Portrait Plaque Miniature Picture 18thc Lady :
This genuine 18th century enamel portrait measures 100mm (4'') x 85mm (3.5'') overall with the plaque measuring 68mm (2.5'') x 55mm (2''). The oval enamel plaque is slightly domed and has a blue grey speckled finish to the reverse of the copper and the front is beautifully painted with a portrait of a lady in a yellow silk dress holding a flower in her lefthand and some thread in the other. I would date it to the late 1700's and would say it is English in origin most likely Staffordshire but I am not an expert in this area so please email me any questions. The frame is black wood with an inner gilded boarder and is in good antique condition, the plaque has some chips around the edge which I have tried to highlight in the photos as well as an old stained crack running vertically. It is a very high quality 18thc century enamel plaque in good honest antique condition.

Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person.
