George IV period framed miniature of a man with black jacket and high white neck cloth. Nicely observed profile portrait. Black wooden frame with brass acorn mount to hanging ring. The rear of the picture says "Edward H.......wood (part obliterated by water stain) 1824. The old paper backing has been punctured below this, and the handwritten date 1824 is visible, along with printed business paper which shows just the surname "Herve" with an accute accent on the e. Also "...portrait and Profile Painter, Cheapside, London." Framed measures 14.5 cm by 12.25 cm (5.3/4 inches by 4.3/4 inches). The actual portait oval is 9 cm by 7.5 cm (3.1/2 inches by 3 inches). Condition: The black wood of the frame has some dotting to the finish, probably insect dirt. The rear has signs of insect damage to the brown paper backing. Inside the glass is a little hazy, but the painting appears to be in excellent condition. This is the companion to the woman's miniature we have also in this category (our stock number C12446).
