19th Century Portrait Miniature Wealthy Gentleman

This very distinguished watercolour portrait miniature of a gentleman was produced in England during the early 19th century, in the year 1827. It is quite unusual to find a watercolor on card miniature in this three quarter view, making this example particularly desirable. The painting features a wealthy Georgian gentleman wearing the typical attire of the day. He is entirely dashing, confidently self assured and thoroughly arresting with that commanding stare straight at the viewer. The watercolor painting is on card and is housed behind its original convex glass in its original papier mache frame with a hilt hangar and bezel. The reverse of the frame features a hand written ink inscription by the artist reading ‘William Huxtable at the age of 20, 1827, by his early friend James Trickey.’

We believe the sitter to be William Huxtable Esq who was born in Devon in 1807 and died in 1890. He married Mary Ann Huxtable. They lived on a 350 – 400 acre farm called Wallover Barton in Challacombe, Devon. Both Huxtable and Trickey were both surnames associated with Devon, England.

Measuring: Frame width 4.75 inch (12 cm) by height 5.5 inch (14 cm). Aperture width 2.25 inch (6 cm) by height 2.75 inch (7 cm).

Condition: Very good.

This is a quality little painting that will display excellently, the perfect item for anyone who collects all things Georgian and Regency. Please see our collection of portrait miniature listed separately in our store.
