Antique Miniature Portrait on Bone with Fitted Case 14-Karat Yellow Gold Brooch

About

Dating from the late 17th century and done in the Federalist style, this finely detailed and well executed hand painted miniature portrait on bone of a period nobleman can be worn as a brooch, or displayed as a painting. The back is unmarked, but tests for 14-karat yellow gold and presents with a window that displays locks of woven hair in a decorative pattern. The fitted leather case retains its original clasp and hinges and inner lining and opens and closes as intended. The artist is unknown and the painting is unsigned.
