    Quality Miniature Painting of Abraham Lincoln, Hand-painted on Ivory Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President (1861-1865). Circa 1865, miniature painting of Lincoln on ivory. Very choice near mint. A truly lovely work of art, measuring 4" x 3", being a full-color miniature of Abraham Lincoln hand painted on ivory, framed within a highly ornate and inlaid ivory outer frame to an overall size of 7" x 5". The frame is made of intricately inlaid ivory and lignum vitae, typical of the artwork that was done at the time in Dieppe, France and likely being where it was created, a further hint being an original backing on the frame using old French newspaper. The beautifully executed frame and painting are overall in marvelous condition. The original metal ring loop is still intact at top, making this magnificent Lincoln miniature portrait ready for immediate display.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
