A charming 19th, possibly 18th century Silhouette portrait circa 1800, of a young gentleman.

The scissor-cut hand painted silhouette features bronze highlighting to the gentlemans hair, and textured black hand painted highlights to his jacket and hair.

Housed under convex glass to a black paper maché/wood frame, bronze or brass frame with ribbon top detail, and interestingly the top of the paper maché frame is adorned with a Dove, symbolic of mourning.

A wonderful piece for the serious collector.
