Portrait of a Nobelwoman by A. Soustre
Circular enamel on copper half-length portrait of a young woman by the highly regarded Limoges enamelier Antoine Soustre.
Dressed in a full bolero top embellished with finely embroidered attachments and with a lacy cap on her head, she stands out quite beautifully from the dark leafy background incorporating shades of green, pink and blackcurrant.
The enamels on the strongly coloured areas are enhanced with the incorporation of paillons.
Soustre was artistically active during the period towards the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries and his enamel works are now keenly sought after.
In excellent condition and set in a dark stained wood mount, within an ornate gilded frame.
The overall size is 34 cm square with the enamel image having a diameter of 18 cm.
