A fabulous Edwardian Hand Painted Miniature Portrait in a fabulous ormolu frame. We are lucky that we have been able to identify both the sitter and the artist. The sitter was a Miss Jeanie Boyle of Glasgow and the artist who captured this amazing portrait was Ethel A. Gibb. Superb quality painting, the sitter with masses of light brown hair raised up above an oval face wearing a pale blue dress against a background that merges with the figure and fades to nothing, very skillfully done with the artist's initials on the right. The painting is presented behind glass in an oval ormolu bezel set in pale blue water marked silk matt with applied gilt wreaths and swags in its ormolu frame with a pediment of a wreath with trailing leaves. The easel back has a green leather covering with brass hooks to secure in place when not in use. The size of the miniature is 73mm high x 52mm wide. The frame size is shown below. 6 1/2" high.
