​Fine 19th C. Silhouette

This lovely piece depicts a child holding a doll, approaching her mother who, with pointed finger, is instructing her.  This silhouette is a cut and paste on a sepia watercolor background, with hand painted gold embellishments on the figures.  A lovely silhouette!  Housed in the original figured maple veneered frame (a few losses to veneer).  Measuring 8 1/2" wide by 10" tall (with frame).  There is a worn label on the reverse with names, but I have been unable to make all of it out, But what I can read says, "Cluny  ________ " & "Tapestry" & "______   _______" & "Bettie Wesley".
