A lucky antique store find. The portrait is in good shape, but the case has some wear and tear. Notice the ledger type paper under the satin opposite the portrait. It looks period and possibly, if taken apart could reveal clues of its origin and/or help narrow the date of the artwork? There are possible initials on her left arm sleeve in blue H.
