Description

    Miniature Painting of an Unknown British Army Officer, C. 1770. This stunning miniature painting pictures a British Army officer in a red uniform with yellow facings and silver lace epaulettes. The painting, not examined out of the frame, appears to be on ivory and is unsigned on the front. The front glass is domed with a slight bevel along the rim. The back of the case has rich blue enamel with a radiating pattern underneath. In the center of the back are a domed glass oval with braided blond hair and the entwined initials "CG". The untested case appears to be gold, but is unmarked. The case measures 2.25" x 2.875", excluding the 0.5" bail. The painting and the case are both in excellent condition.
