It is very rare to come by two original Miniature portrait paintings of Martha and George Washington. These are extremely exclusive in that their original frames are Ivory. They are less then 5% and are pre ban ivory. Both paintings are extremely detailed as you can see from the close-up Ihave provided (both have piercing blue eyes). Both bear the same artist signature Renner and it is more legible on the George Washington then the Martha. The ivory is also detailed in that it has been carved and or etched. The frames measure 4.5" x 5.5" and the images are each 2.25" x 3.25"
SHIPPING IS EXPENSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO CALCULATE AS WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE ITEM WILL SELL FOR (INSURANCE) NOR WHERE THE NEW OWNER LIVES. THE PRICE TO MAIL SOMETHING ON THE EAST COAST IN COMPARISON TO SENDING TO THE WEST COAST VARIES GREATLY. MY POSTED SHIPPING PRICE IS FOR EAST COAST DELIVERIES (500 MILES WITH IN DC) AND DOES INCLUDE INSURANCE. IF THE SHIPPING PRICE IS GREATER THEN WHAT IS POSTED IT IS UP TO WINNING buyer TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM CANCELING A SALE IF YOU’RE NOT HAPPY WITH THE FINAL SHIPPING PRICE
