Item Details
Description
A Gold, Enamel, Seed Pearl, and Portrait-Inset Snuff Box
Likely Hanau, 18th/19th Century
of oval form, the lid centered with a portrait miniature of a lady, the portrait frame decorated with gold and inset-pearl banding; the lid, sides and underside decorated with floral foliate paillon motifs in the Rococo taste.
marked with a fleur-de-lis on flange of base near hinge, the base of interior with a flower, crowned letter 'Q' and interlaces script letters
Diameter 3 1/4 inches.
Property from the Estate of a Prominent Kansas City Collector
Condition
In overall decent, stable, attractive condition. The hinge-pin likely replaced, lid opens and closes completely but requires slightly more force than expected to open and close. The lid with very slight separation from sides of lid, but does not largely detract from aesthetic of box. The enameling appears largely intact with only a few very light flakes to Corinthian capital motifs on side of lid. Examination under UV light shows areas of fluorescence to enamel on lid in upper right corner between outer border and portrait border suggestion minor restoration, more obvious restoration to enamel along back columnar motifs and along white enamel banding on base of sides near back of case. Additional images available upon request.
