A superb hand painted miniature Portrait of an officer in uniform of I believe a French Cavalry Officer with the Legion of Honor Medal of 1802. I think the uniform would date to the Napoleonic period of 1800 to 1820 but it is extremely difficult to make a more accurate date. The miniature portrait is painted on a thin card using pencil and watercolour and presented behind glass in a later carved wooden frame that dates to around 1900. The sitter is shown wearing a dark green tunic with red facing colour and black stock with gold buttons down the front and a medal with the legion of honor white cross and red ribbon. The size of the miniature is 140mm high x 104mm wide, the frame size is shown below.
Celia Rose Antiques has clarified that the Miniature Portrait French Cavalry Officer Legion of Honor 1802 (LA222853) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1820
