This is an original watercolor on Ivory painting, circa 1820.  This miniature came to us sealed in a bronze frame with domed glass.  The image measures 4 1/4X3 1/2 inches.  The painting is signed lower right, Cales....?  Possibly French in origin, there appears to be some minor foxing on the work, its possibly just on the glass inside, but this work is sealed up and weve been unable to open it.  The backing appears to be of tortoise shell.  Overall in good shape a bit of damage to the floral design at the top of the frame.  Our photo shows reflection on the left and right edges of the painting, these do not appear on the original artwork.

Paul Sandby, the brother of Thomas Sandby, was an English engraver and painter. He began his artistic career as a landscape painter and draftsman for the Scottish military. As a printmaker, Sandby popularized the use of aquatint, and was considered to be the father of British watercolors. In 1768 the brothers were both among the twenty-eight of the original members of the Royal Academy.
