POA

A lovely Arts & Crafts mixed media portrait roundel of a young Mucha style lady in its original ebonised frame; c1900.

Intrinsically a glazed, painted embroidered needlework female side protrait design with additional bejewellement of what appears to be turquoise and other beadwork. The young lady is also wearing a velvet and silk head covering. Reminiscent of some of the (later) work of Mary Ireland.

Aberdeen framers label to the back. In the manner of James Cromar Watt (who coincidentally was also an Aberdonian!)

Approx 19.5" overall diameter inc frame; 14" visible diameter.
