Portrait of a Renaissance Lady*
Oval Limoges enamel portrait of a noble lady from the Renaissance era set in a gilt metal frame.
Dressed in fine clothes she is portrayed with her head turned three-quarters towards the viewer and looking confidently ahead.
Enamelled on to a convex copper plaque with strong colours and fine detail, highlighted with paillons of gold and embossed pearls.
The back of the copper plaque shows an old, possibly original coating of lacquer and there is the remnant of an old retailer’s label still affixed together with a ring for hanging.
Circa late 1800’s with an overall size of 11.5 X 9.5 cm.
There is a tiny scuff to the enamel on the lady’s forehead which can just be seen in our photos.
