“MY MOTHER . . . While the woman?s retaped sixth plate might not be terribly fashion oriented, when her separated leather case is opened, Jesse Wilkinson?s beaming smile and relaxed pose should win over any collector?s heart! She is beautifully framed by pleasant patina that certainly matched her glowing disposition. The quality of the portrait and the overall condition are both superlative. Her maker applied gold to every piece of jewelry Jesse wore while she posed for her likeness. The worn leather case is apart. Tinting was added to her cheeks and I should add that the reflected depth is outstanding!
