Antique French female head and shoulders oil portrait in a gold coloured frame from the 1800's.  This is a pretty little treasure.  A study of a young woman in a light blue/grey jacket which sports a beautiful frilly lace collar.  The woman's hair is tied back into what looks like a plaited bun topped by hair decorations.  Its a simple but charming, endearing and totally effective little portrait on a good thick wood board, the frills give an otherwise smooth board texture and interest. 


Medium: Oil on thick wood board.

Overall size: 9ins x 12ins or 23cms x 30cms (Approx)

Date: Mid 1800's

Signed:  No

Condition:  A good visual piece with imperfections associated with age, particularly around the edges of the painting.  The frame has damage throughout, missing plaster/gilt which to me adds to its authenticity but if you like perfection, then its not for you.  I am not sure if this is the original frame, but the style is Napoleon III which dates 1808 - 1873 and would certainly match the date of the painting.  

This painting is sent fully insured, track and trace with Colissimo.
