"Miniature On Ivory Of A Man In A Gray Frock Coat And Hair Work Directoire Period"
Set under glass in a double-sided medallion circled in pomponne with a work in hair on the reverse. Oval miniature on ivory from the end of the 18th century, Directoire period which represents a man with a pink complexion in a gray frock coat with a high collar on a blue waistcoat and a white tie ending in a pleated frill. He wears finely executed light bob hair as well as his perfectly rendered face. On the back of the medallion, the hair is gathered and arranged in an opposite direction to form a checkerboard with changing and bright colors and reflections. On each quarter of the checkerboard, initials were formed with pearls, probably those of the subject (we find in the checkerboard a color similar to that of his hair) or his own and those of his wife and / or those of his children, some quarters of the checkerboard having different shades of color. The glasses are slightly domed. Dimension: 5.2 cm x 4.4 cm Good condition. The medallion has undergone transformations over time (old brooch), some discreet marks of age and use. Many other objects to discover in my stand at the antique fairs in which I participate. Follow my gallery to be informed of news and to know the dates of the next Trade Shows ... Any questions?
