The Falconer by Rosemary Sutcliff | 1952 miniature painting.

I have recently found that a miniature painting by Rosemary Sutcliff that I was unaware of sold at Halls auctioneers in Shrewsbury in 2012.  The Falconer is a watercolour on ivorine, signed and dated 1952. Rosemary was an expert miniaturist before she became a published author.
