Friendship souvenir case, Gold mount, late 18 ThC
Friendship souvenir case. It is in ivory, gold mount and inscription “souvenir” on one side and “friendship” on the other. It is decorated with two miniatures decorated with gallant scenes. It contains small gold pencil, and five ivory writing plates. It is 3,46″ high and 2″ wide. It is in good condition, to report however the lack of the gold border on the bottom of the case, small gaps on two of the ivory writing plates and a slight luster on the right of the glass protecting the miniature representing the young couple and the sheep. These details are visible in the photos.
France, late eighteenth century.
