Lot 0022
A fine silhouette on natural organic material, done in black and bronze gilt, of an older woman. Although unsigned, the work was unquestionably done by John Field. The reverse of the gilt metal case, which comes with its silk lined red leather travel case, has elaborate, tightly woven, hairwork of two colors, indicating that one of them was hers, while the other was of a loved one.
Both the miniature and the case are in excellent condition. Sight size of the piece is 2 3/8" by 1 7/8", with the case size being 2 9/16" by 2 1/16".
