Early Framed Portraits on Ivory


These circular wooden portraits came from Germany and show a gentleman and woman of the early 19th Century. Their clothing does indicate an earlier period as seen in the mans high color and ruffled shirt. The lady is wearing a hat that covers her hair, much like a night cap. The gold inner frame with a border of beading certainly enhances each portrait. A thin piece of glass over each portrait protects each painting on ivory.

This pair of portraits would be lovely in a parlor, hallway or bedroom!
