Description

This is the first of 2 Miniature Portraits both daughters to Admiral Herbert Sawyer this daughter named as Miss Jane Sawyer and dating to around we believe to 1780/1790.The miniature is presented behind glass in a simple narrow brass edge frame that does have a very faded inscription which is almost illegible. The sitter is shown wearing a very pale blue off the shoulder dress edged with lace, a large bow in the centre and puff sleeves. A single stand necklace with her hair tied up at the back and loose curls on either side of her forehead. Excellent brushwork, with strong colour with beautifully detailed painting to the facial features, I would guess her age to be late teens.

Declaration

Celia Rose Antiques has clarified that the Miniature Portrait Daughter of Admiral Herbert Sawyer Miss Jane Sawyer (CRP328 / LA148075) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1780 / 1790.

Condition

The base does have some issues, a couple of fine cracks, which have proved difficult to photograph through the glass, hence the halo by the left side of her head. The first which begins at the base on the edge of her right sleeve running up to the bottom of the bow, the second which begins half way up her left sleeve running up toward the level of her eye. They are stable and do not distract from the overall image. These are historically important Miniatures with ties to a period in history and relate to our navel achievements.
