Lot 229

Description

A gilt-metal mounted Meissen porcelain rectangular snuff-box and cover, c.1755-60, the exterior painted with figures in landscape gardens next to monuments and sheep, within rococo scroll-moulded cartouches, the interior of the cover stippled with a portrait of a finely dressed lady seated by a table and holding a saucer of steaming coffee up to her mouth, a Meissen coffee pot beside her, within an elaborate gilt floral cartouche, 9cm wide

Note: For a scalloped-shaped Meissen snuff-box stippled on the interior of the cover with a lady within a similar gilt cartouche, see Sarah-Katharina Acevedo et al., Meissen Snuff Boxes of the Eighteenth Century, Munich, 2013, pp. 328-329, Cat. no. 100, where it is noted that the interior scene is derived from an engraving by Johann Esaias Nilson, Zeit-vertreib der Frauenzimmer (The Amusements of the Fair Sex).  The painting style of the lady on the interior of the cover is the same as the lady on the interior of the present box, suggesting that the same painter was the author of both interior scenes.
