This is an extremely rare and interesting collection of miniature silhouettes dating from around 1780.
These are reverse painted on glass and would have had a mirrored edging which has mainly deteriorated.
Each measures 2 inches diameter.
They depict 7 members of the same family each with their initials beneath.
Each silhouette sits in a wooden frame, some damage to the edges of the frames but this does not detract.
They make a stunning display in an early dolls house.
A very rare find.
