Watercolour Portrait by Charles Peltant
Framed watercolour portrait of a smiling young lady wearing an off-the-shoulder gown and a long lacy bonnet.
She is posing in front of a floral patterned pen and ink background with her head half turned towards the viewer, and looks completely at ease.

The oval image measures 23 cm high by 17.5 wide and the old faux burr frame is just over 34 cm high by a fraction below 17 cm wide.
