I recently received an email transmiting several images thought to be Lizzie Borden and asking my opinion as to whether or not it was, in fact, her.

I have a charcoal portrait that I believe to be of Lizzie Borden and I have held onto it..trying to locate someone with knowledge on this matter. I found the Portrait in the back room all by itself on the wall of an antique shop somewhere in Connecticut. I believe it to be from the 1800s. When I walked into this room and saw this portrait, I said to myself oh my goodness…that’s Lizzie Borden and until this day I still believe that it is a portrait of her. The antique shop had no information on it and no idea who it could possibly be. I would greatly appreciate any information you could offer and can also send you photos of the portrait. There is a signature on the bottom that I can not identify, I believe it may be in french….not sure. My email is Thank You
I say no. The lips are wrong, the ears are wrong, too much hair on both sides of the middle part, and the dress appears to be from the early to mid 1860’s. Lizzie was born in 1860.
