Miniature Portrait - Large Round - Jane Austen
Miniature Portraits have been a common piece of sentimental jewelry for centuries. You see them during the Tudor Era through the Victorian period. Like our modern-day lockets, they were a way to keep a portrait of a loved-one or someone you admire close.
These historical miniatures feature portraits of well-know figures in history. They measure 35mm and are available in Silver plate, Gold plate, or Antique Gold plate. They are finished with either a simple decorative edge or a more elaborate crystal halo.
This miniature features Jane Austen...kind of. Images of Jane remain elusive. This portrait is from 1870 and was used in a biography of Jane written by her nephew. It is certainly an idealized version of her, but I chose this one as it is both recognizable and charming!

*Please note that the photographs of these items often include reflections from my studio. The items do not have those flaws in real life - just the difficulty of capturing images of a reflective surface!
