Ellison Fine Art Portrait miniature specialist


Claudia Hill at Ellison Fine Art

Claudia Hill at Ellison Fine Art has been established for over 17 years.

The company specialises in selling fine English and Continental portrait miniatures and silhouettes from the 16th century through to the middle of the 19th century.


The firm carries an extensive range of stock, to appeal to the beginner, as well as to the more established collector.

Each portrait is chosen for the quality, condition and “collectability” factor.

The firm is always available to give advice to anyone interested in forming a collection, including help with how to display and store the portrait miniatures and how to buy with confidence.
