A fine miniature portrait painting, on organic wafer, of a boy. The young lad, who is holding a red book, is wearing a blue jacket, a striped vest over a white shirt with a flared collar wide open at the neck. He has an earring in his ear. Because of the style clothing, and the earring, this would be a portrait of a ship's cabin boy. It is very unusual to find such a painting as cabin boys would not have the money to pay for it.
The portrait is housed in a period black painted wood frame with eglomise decorated glass. Sight size is 2 5/8" by 2 1/4", and the framed size is 5 1/8" by 4 1/4". Condition of the painting and the frame are excellent, with no issues.
