Vintage Thursday Thingie: Miniature Glass Paintings
These are two Italian miniature glass paintings. The frames are about 51/2" x 5 ", the glass paintings themselves are only 2 1/2" x 2"! Very tiny and very hard to photograph! Both are "courtly" scenes of elegant men and women-the clothing styles are 18th century, but I don't know if that has anything to do with the age of these paintings (I doubt it!).
