Portrait on Porcelain

Gorgeous Victorian painting of a woman on a convex oval porcelain.  It is artist signed in the lower right corner (see photo) but it is hard to make out the letters.  There is a paper label on the back with numbers and a title in script below that (see photo).  This piece is mounted in a lovely ornate gilt frame which features a three dimensional leaf motif.  A beaded border goes around the oval.  A stunning subject in an appropriately impressive frame!   

Circa:   1870.    Dimensions:   7″H   x   5 1/4″W  (porcelain).   13.5″H   x   12.5″W (frame).    Condition:   Porcelain is in very good original condition.  Frame has some  losses and previous repairs but they are so fancy, they are well hidden.   Nice original old gilt patina.   Price:   $1650                              SPECIAL SALE PRICE:   $1150 017 019 020 002po2
