MR STANLEY has much pleasure in informing his many Patrons and the Public, that he has recently added greatly to the beauty and pictorial effect of his MINIATURES.  

His successful treatment in colour imparts to them the high finish of an enamel;  and being painted on the finest Photographic Impressions, is a perfect assurance of their fidelity.

*** Miniatures for Rings, Brooches, Bracelets, Lockets, &c.
