Description: American School, Artist Unknown: This formal portrait of a woman is from the early 1800's, and is installed in a rare hand-carved wooden frame. (All the details are carved in low relief -- you can see rough chisel marks)

The woman is posed reading a letter with a magnifying glass. The glass has a long gold chain. Everything about this woman, from the bonnet to the mourning dress and the sofa she is sitting on, indicates her status as wealthy matron.

The painting is unsigned, as many early American portraits are, and the sitter is unidentified.
Dimensions: 24" x 20" canvas; 32" x 28" frame
Medium: oil
Date: 1820
Condition Report: The painting has been cleaned, lined and retouched.
Provenance: A Massachusetts Estate
Notes: The frame is skillfully carved, but not highly smoothed-out and refined. The gold paint on it has dulled. It may be original, or from it's previous restoration, which could have been in the early 1900's. There is no evidence that the frame ever had another finish. It may have been originally unpainted, and made for another artwork. Although they are approximately the same age, the portrait is fit into the frame in a way that shows that they were not originally together.
