I am not sure... story made short...a lost cousin of mine

Customer Question

I am not sure...long story made short...a lost cousin of mine sent two photos to me of a portrait of a very well know Royal. The frame itself, I have only found one other similar match online. The Royal in question is Princesse Maria Theresa of Savoy-Carigan. It is handpainted on either ivory or bone. Apparently it has been passed down through our family on my paternal grandmother's side.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Not at this time, I will have no addt'l inofo on the piece until I speak with my cousin tonite
