Pretty in White

Circa 1820


A charming portrait of a blue-eyed child in a traditional white dress trimmed with blue ribbon bows and wearing coral beads, historically thought to ward off evil spirits and illness.

In good condition, the portrait is set in a period papier-mâché frame with an unusual floral and fruit hanger.
