"Enamel Of Limoges From XVII Eme Century, Signed Jacques Landin Ii"Beautiful Limoges enamel representing Saint François Xavier.
the saint appears here in ecstasy haloed with gold rays, his silhouette emerges from a black background studded with stars in the middle of an oval rimmed with white.
Saint Francis Xavier is therefore represented in full ecstasy, he receives the holy spirit and wears his priestly garments.
The saint is superb, the details are very subtle in the drapery of the garment, the colors, the complexion, the facial features ...
around this oval, the enameller has created a floral decoration of gold color with blue flowers and green in each corner.
he placed the name of the saint in a white cartouche at the bottom of the enamel with his signature of master enameller:
.I.L. for Jacques Landin, probably the 2nd Jacques Landin II (1663-1729), see dictionary of enamellers by Émile Moulinier.
a pretty blackened wooden frame from the Napoleon III period protects the whole.
some small lack of enamel at the top center of the oval and another small lack in the flower at the top right, a small old restoration in the white cartridge at the bottom, look at the photos, thank you.
Otherwise the general condition is really very good.
a very beautiful Limoges enamel signed by a famous enameller.
A beautiful collector's item.
