About this object

The rectangular frame is made of agate and is beveled at the corners. The band around the miniature is made in vermeil with a blue enamel band in the center. It is set above and below with three decorations made of sapphire and diamonds. On each side are two decorations of gold and enamel. The miniature is of Marjorie Merriweather Post with Nedenia and Marwee as young girls. Marwee is on her left and Nedenia is on her left. They have flowers in front of them. It appears to be a composition of three seperate images in photographs. The frame came in its original fitted box.
