    This miniature portriat painting measures 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches and is beautifully framed in a Rococco frame, surrounded by green velvet and covered a slightly belved glass. It is signed with what appeaqrs to be either BORNE or BOSME.
    It appear to be a watercolor on paper.
    Since I have absolutely no information on the artist nor sitter, I am seeking information of any type pertaining to the item
