* A finely painted miniature portrait of Josephine De Beauharnaise 1763-1814. Born marie Josephine Tascher de la Pagerie, she was the first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte and the first Empress of France. * We have included in the pictures listed a portrait of Josephine which we are sure was the reference used for this particular miniature portrait. With some artistic license there are obvious references to the dress and crown plus the hair. * The miniature is presented behind glass in an oval gilt bezel set in an ebonised wooden frame. * The size of the miniature is 56mm high x 45mm wide. The frame size is shown below.
