From the World of Jane Austen

Circa 1810


This is an enchanting portrait of a teenage girl who would have been a contemporary of Jane Austen whose novels epitomise the Regency era. Shown in profile, the girl is wearing a blue dress with a typically high waist and short narrow sleeves. Her hair is cut fashionably short with the ends curled to frame her face.

Watercolour painted on card and housed in a traditional papier-mâché frame with a brass surround and emblems (rose, thistle and shamrock) hanger. The frame has the usual edge nibbles but is otherwise in excellent condition.
