Hand-Painted Miniature "George Washington" Portrait
c. 1800-1820 Post-Revolutionary War, Federal Era, Hand-Painted Miniature, George Washington Portrait, Oval, Period Framed, Choice Extremely Fine.
This masterful, original Hand-Painted Miniature measures 2.5" x 3.25" being housed in a 5.25" x 4.5" period octagonal frame with a fancy decorative scroll design border. Portrait is signed "K. Day" just left of Washington's right shoulder. Framed without glass with its original brass hanger at top. The Portrait is finely executed with impressive color and a high level of skill by the artist. It is defect-free, having some very slight trivial wear from the frame edge at bottom left. An important example worthy of museum display.
