The New Puppy

Circa 1850


Dressed for the evening in a pale blue wide-shouldered dress edged with white lace and with a pink rose on her décolletage, this young lady has chosen to pose for her coming-of-age portrait with her cute little King Charles spaniel on her lap. Her dress is ornamented with long, possibly jet, beads and matching bracelet, her hair arranged in long ringlets.

Watercolour on card set in a bird’s eye maple frame with a verre eglomise mount.
