A fine watercolour on ivory of three spinners ( probably an allegory of life) possibly after durer. the quality of painting is quite exceptional. signed to the bottom right l corsi 7 1875. perhaps the 7 relates to one of a series. the miniature is set into an ormolu frame of equally good frame of mercury gilt ormolu with beading to the inner edge, milling to the centre and herringbone to the outside edge. there is a ring to the top for hanging it up.5.75 inches by 4.875 inches ( 14.375 cms by 12 cms). if someone can tell me who the original was by i would be grateful.
