Ivory portraits were very fashionable during the 18th and 19th century, however the combination of watercolours and an oily and non absorbent surface demanded a preparation of the surface that took many decades to develop
The item was produced before 1947, and is therefore in compliance with European Union regulations on ivory trade. The item comes with a certificate which will be sent to the buyer.
