Philadelphia Miniature Portrait

A fine and rare miniature portrait marked in early ink on the back “Phila. 1782″ In its original frame with convex glass with an eglomise black and gold border. We don’t know the specific identity of the sitter, but we do know that it descended in the family of James Wilson [1740-1790] who lived in Pennsylvania until late in his life when he moved to Kentucky.

The oval portrait itself measures about 3.25″ x 2.5”
