Set in a beautiful oval frame chiseled in silver and vermeil,this moving miniature painted on ivory of a young child wearing a white tunic-style dress made from a light fabric, high waist raised by a belt emphasizing the chest and short sleeves, is like the renewal of dress at the time of Directoire Period.
The hairstyle is also simpler: long loose hair, held by a simple band decorated with a bow and flowers; a white muslin veil on the shoulders.
A shawl matching the belt completes his costume.
Good condition, a light little crack at the right end of the miniature. non visible
