According to old legend on verso it is a portrait of certain Mme Isidore Grisset, nee de Ema...
This of very good quality miniature on ivory strongly resembles works of well-known Parisian female artist of 1st half of the 19th century - Mme Aimee Zoe Lizinka de Mirbel.

Mme Aimée Zoe Lizinka de Mirbel, nee Rue, (1796 Cherbourg – 1849 Paris) was daughter of a naval commissar. Showing increasing talent for painting already at an early age, she entered the studio of Augustin. In 1819 her highly-placed friends arranged for her to paint the portrait of King Louis XVIII. Mirbel’s debut was a complete success. Louis XVIII appointed her The Official Painter to the King. She exhibited this portrait at the Salon, along with portraits of eleven other important court nobles.
In 1824, with King’s approval, she married the botanist Charles Francois Brisseau de Mirbel. From that point on she always appeared under her married name at the Salon. In 1827 she painted the portrait of Charles X, and in 1839 – that of Duke of Orleans.
Right up to the end of her career (she was a victim of the cholera epidemic of 1849) her fame did nothing but increase, and she may be considered as one of the most sought after and feted miniaturists of her period.
Amongst the pupils of Augustin, she was undoubtedly the artist who had the most personality. Almost all the miniaturists who worked in France around the mid-19th century were pupils of Mme de Mirbel.
