It arrived poorly packed and the thin cover glass shattered, leaving a real job of restoration, which we've worked on for ages. I think the result is almost impossible to criticize, and the 7 paintings now do not show the light scrapes at all. Fine brush, dry brush gouache, and patience.
The set is again, just superb - fine details and jewelry, musical instrument and pet dog, caps and gowns and red hair - truly a museum piece and museum restoration. The shadow box frame is about 1 in depth, the inner silk velvet mat curving and beveled to the front point all around the perimeter. I have not replaced the old glass yet.
I have done enlarged photos of each of the 7 paintings so you can evaluate them and my restoration skills. I hope you like them as I do.Full measurements noted on the photos. Very good to excellent condition for age and type. A family combined display of 7 stunning individual portrait miniatures, c. 1770s or so from the fashion. Each one has a dore bronze custom made frame, all of which have been mounted in a custom inner mat and framed in wood which is backed in more old silk velvet. Ready to hang, but photos were taken without the large cover glass. Far more gorgeous and valuable, really, in original group format and frame. Sadly, we do not have the name or family identity, nor an artist's signature. We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important!
