This little portrait was acquired with a group of daguerreotypes. Along one edge I can make out the name "Gainsborough", possibly with a single initial in front of it. I do not know much about miniature paintings and am happy to answer any questions.

What I can tell you about this piece is that I can see brush strokes, and looking at it with my loupe it is does not pixelate or look like a modern print in any way. I do believe it's antique, and the woman appears to be dressed in 18th century clothing, but I do not know the exact age.

It is behind glass in a frame that measures about 3.5" across. I can't tell if the vertical line is a scratch or if the piece is cracked.

Boxed shipping.
