Antique Portrait Miniature of Young Child in Blue Dress Holding Canary
  • Lovely 19th century watercolor portrait miniature of a adorable child holding a canary.  This beautiful child has a head full of tight strawberry blond curls, blue eyes, and a lovely creamy complexion with rosy cheeks.  He or she wears a low cut blue dress with short puffed sleeves and a white lace collar.  In his/her cubby hand calmly sits a yellow canary.  The child stands next to a green table with a potted flowering plant.  The portrait is beautifully executed with an expert hand at stippling the wonderful colors.  The wafer is rectangular with cut corners and is housed in a turned wood frame with brass liner.  The cardboard backing is covered with leather.  I have my doubts that the frame is as old as the portrait miniature, but it definitely is 19th century.  Framed size is 5" x 6".  Circa 1830.
