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! You can read more about his fascinating life here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas-Alexandre_Dumas .  This portrait post-dates his life, but commemorates his military service.
