Description Miniature portrait painting of an 18th Century lady, pulling a thread from a bobbin. Probably based on a 1756 painting of Princess Marie Adelaide de Bourbon (1732-1800) daughter of Louis XV, by Jean-Marc Nattier (1685-1766). This miniature is probably a photograph on celluloid film, highlighted with watercolors.
