A fine Hand Painted Miniature Portrait on Ivorine by listed miniaturist Arthur Royce Bradbury A.R.W.A. circa 1920. A very soft atmospheric portrait of a lady painted in profile, her hair is platted and worked around her forehead with natural grey tones, the painting is signed at the bottom, A. Bradbury. Presented behind glass in an oval deep ebonised frame with brass outer bezel. The size of the miniature is approximately 70mm high x 55 mm wide, the frame size is shown below.
Celia Rose Antiques has clarified that the Miniature Portrait by Arthur Royce Bradbury A.R.W.A. 1892-1977 (LA339527) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1920
In excellent antique condition, the ivorine base has no damage, there is no loss of colour and in my opinion is not fadde but has been painted using a very soft pallet with the white blouse fading to nothing, beautifully painted and not easy to achieve. The frame has some dings and dents to the outer brass surround which does not distract from the image.
