RESERVED.  Antique French portrait painting of a woman.  This amazing and truly beautiful antiquity from the early 1800's is completely stunning.  A woman sits, her porcelain features merge from the dark background.  She is well painted, her stunning young face has timeless appeal.  Hair parted twice and tied back into an unassuming plaited bun.  Pearl earrings fall from her lobe, they are dainty but significant.  Her lace dress is topped with a beautifully embroidered collar, the sleeves are puffed and the bodice drawn in by a gold belt clasp.  In all, this is a classic painting on a smooth canvas that would elegance and charm to any room in your home.  A rare find.
