A delicately hand-painted portrait graces the lid of this charming bronze ormolu box. Crafted in an elegant lozenge shape, this Rococo-style box is also adorned with exceptional applied and hand-cast decoration. This style of painting was practiced in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe and America for keepsake portraits. Painted on thin, semi-translucent pieces with watercolor or tempera paints and either sable- or marten-hair brushes, usually under a magnifying glass, these paintings displayed colors that had a velvet quality, which was often enhanced by the glow produced by a gold leaf or tinted backing.Circa 18505 1/2" length x 3 1/8" deep x 1 3/8" high
