The miniature is beautifully done and the subject matter very attractive. The covering glass at the front is framed by gold and is all one piece that is removable. The gold frame is surrounded by black enamel inset with quality blue Persian Turquoise cabochons, non of which has discoloured. The body is heavy sterling silver and the top of the frame is decorated with interlocking ribbons inset with turquoise.
