Miniature Portrait - Large Round - Thomas-Alexandre Dumas
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 Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, a hero of the French Revolutionary Wars. He was the first Black person to become a General in the French Army and later fathered famous author Alexandre Dumas!
