You can see her rings and also the bad over painting some one back when did to her dress which we could not fix.
She's holding a book, but even with cropping I can't read the fine print.
The vase with forget me nots is visible with a river in the back round.
We think she dates to the late 1800's. The partial name of the painter is Felix Bra"ndel or auer or ander". There are several Fritzes working in the late 1800's who are German. Since this painting languished in my MIL attic for who knows how long and who knows where from (tho MIL was Austrian / FIL German) we will never know form whence she came.
Lovin' her on my wall.
