ANTIQUE/VINTAGE
Framed Portrait.....dated 1840 History on Back
This framed photograph is lovely....a very regal woman with a slight smile and intense eyes. She wears a lovely lace collar fastened with a cameo brooch. The wood frame is approximately 1 1/2 inches in width and painted a gold color, although the finish has aged and faded. The frame measures about 11 X 14 inches. I uncovered this photo in the attic of our hundred-year-old house. I've always wondered how the subject was connected to the family who built and lived in the house before we purchased it. Maybe she was a long lost relative.
The frame is backed with brown parchment-like paper and has a brief history of the woman in the photo: 8th Generation of Eells of Boslon.
