The sitter of this superior quality enamel miniature strongly resembles Caroline of Brunswick (see our comparison images nr.7-11 and CLICK HERE), consort of King Georg IV of Great Britain (then still Prince-Regent - CLICK HERE). Nevertheless, with almost 100% possibility it is not a work of an English artist (the round form is untypical for that country) but of a Swiss (representative of the School of Geneva?) or of a French (Parisian?) enamelist.
The lady's dress and hairstyle speak for the mid-1810s; this fact allows to suppose that Caroline (if it is really her!) was portrayed at that time being away (!) from England.
As one learns from the biography of Caroline of Brunswick the latter left London in August of 1814 (sic!) and after a short stay in Switzerland (sic!) came to Italy. She settled at Lake Como (Italo-Swiss border) where she spent the next four years (with breaks for travels in the Mediterranean) .
In 1814 she was already 46-years old but one of our comparison images shows her looking relatively young at that age.
