This is a nice 17th-century portrait of an unknown lady. She is painted on what appears to be metal (copper?) in oils and is set into a glazed metal frame. The condition is good, minor losses to the paint in places and much of the gilding has worn on the frame. I cant see a signature and the sitter is not named. Judging from the hairstyle and brooch, I would date her to the 1660's.
