WAS SHE . . . As attractive in life as her likeness was reproduced on a quarter sized dag copied from a drawn portrait? The resealed piece could have been a composite, produced using more than one person as a model. Although, this face looks so familiar to me . . . I probably should recognize the youthful belle. The strength of her visage lays in the reproduction of the lady’s lovely eyes (that has a small mold mite on the right one) her perfectly plump lips, those coils of hair caressing her cheeks and the marvelous shading by the artist. When the plain black leather push button case (that I added) is opened the creaminess of the silver is instantly noticeable. Then the subject begins to delight every admirer! A few other small mold spiders are on the surface. This is a masterful presentation!
