Footnotes

The setting of the present portrait in a contemporary glass scent bottle is extremely unusual and shows how, by the Georgian period, portrait miniatures were being used to adorn many different 'personal items' such as toothpick boxes, card holders and purses. This differed from the earlier decades when portrait miniatures were confined to pieces of jewellery.

Saleroom notices

This lot contains or is made of ivory. The United States Government has banned the import of any ivory into the USA.
