Price: 2500 EUR
(please note additional Austrian VAT (Value Added Tax) applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!
Signed "F:A /ISSER" it is a superior quality miniature on ivory showing a junior (ranks up to "Rittmeister" (cavalry captain)) officer of Austrian Hussar Regiment No. 2 ("Archduke Joseph Anton"; light-blue dolman and pelisse, yellow buttons - see our image nr.9). On the badge of his shoulder belt we see a monogram "FII" (which stands for Holy Roman Emperor Franz II. In 1806 the latter will lose this title, remaining Kaiser (Emperor) of (only) Austria with the name Franz I; correspondingly the monogram "FII" from that year onwards will be replaced by "FI").
The aforementioned author's signature "F:A" means we are dealing here with an extremely rare (and probably one of his earliest) work (practically unique - no other is to be found in modern reference sources!) of Austrian miniaturist F.(Franz? Friedrich?) Anton Isser who was only mentioned once (!) in 1822 as working in Vienna (so Schidlof) or Graz (according to another source).
