Fine Miniature

June 12,2019

 

Our Art Sale is on the Wednesday afternoon as usual, 12th June starting at 2pm.  We have over three hundred lots of pictures to sell and you are welcome to come and view these on 6th and 7th June from 9am-5pm or on Saturday 8th June from 9am - 2pm.

Many of you will be collectors of miniatures and will therefore be interested to view this early 19th Century oval watercolour head and shoulder portrait of Francis Anne Emily (nee Vane-Tempest), the Marchioness of Londonderry (great grandmother of Winston Churchill, signed by the artist R.C.).  It is housed in a gold mount with woven hair and convex glass back, 2.75ins x 2.25ins, and is in a leather fitted box inscribed D. Lavender.

The estimate is £500 - 800, but we hope it will make more on the day.
