I will be posting the entire collection in sections here as I have time.
|Oval portrait of a dark-haired lady dressed in the Italian fashion, watercolor on ivory, unsigned.|
|Portrait of Marie Antoinette with a rose, signed "A.T." gouache on ivory backed with white kid leather, in gilt wood frame.|
|Portrait of Marie Antoinette in an apricot dress, unsigned watercolor on ivory. This painting is much smaller and older than its elaborate frame, which dates from the late 1870's.|
|Very fine and pretty portrait of a young girl, gouache on bone ivory, signed "Gericault 1812" backed with white kid leather, in its original simple brass frame.|
