Information

A truly fabulous item!

We are delighted to offer for sale an original antique English School pastel portrait of Elizabeth, Countess Winterton, Circa 1782.  The picture is unsigned.  A label verso, states that she was aged 24 at the time of sitting. 

The picture first came to us with a frame and mount that was in a very sorry state.  The mount and frame have therefore had to be replaced and the original label to the reverse has been moved to the back of the new frame.

The picture is again behind glass and set within a new mount and encased within a period frame.

For those interested, we have found the following information about the Countess;
