Boîte à Portrait

A portrait miniature of high carat gold, decorated with floral motives, such as the tulip, on a white background in iron red, manganese, blue, yellow and green enamel and traditional turquoise enamel on the inside. The hinge and border are decorated with red, white and blue striped enamel.

The miniature does not have the “posse de pois” decorations that were popular in the first half of the 17th century. For this it can be dated after 1630, from the second half of the 17th century, French or Dutch.
