Ref  NS6   Lover's Lips

From a private collection where it has been for many years, a gold pendant circa 1790, set with a watercolour miniature depiction of a female lips and nose, the remainder of her face hidden behind blue clouds. To reverse, a lock of brown hair under crystal. Genuine Georgian lover's eye miniatures are rare and this is only the third example I have ever seen of a lover's lips. The pendant measures 1 and 1/4 inches by 3/4 of an inch. Finely executed miniature painting, enigmatic, immaculate.
