Stobwasser - portrait of Ferdinand VII

This miniature portrait is on the cover of a paper machie snuff box which is signed "Stobwasser". There were several members of the Stobwasser family who painted portrait on snuff boxes and this one may be by Christian Heinrich Stobwasser (1780-1834). The sitter is Ferdinand VII (1784-1833) King of Spain.

For more about him see Ferdinand VII, king of Spain 90.
