LARGE Dore Bronze Box w/ SIGNED Portrait Miniature on Ivory & Ormolu Mounts

Offered here is a large gilt bronze box, dating to late 19th century France. The wonderfully modeled ormolu mounts give the casket a nice raised design. The top is inset with a portrait miniature, hand painted on ivory and housed under glass. The painting is modeled after a self portrait of Vigee Lebrun with her daughter Jeanne Lucie Louise (the portrait painter of Marie Antoinette). It is very nicely detailed and is signed by the artist, "Denise." A pristine box, sure to impress!

Condition: Excellent. The miniature and bronze is undamaged and original. The original interior velvet lining is stained.

Measurements: The box is 6 1/4 in x 5 1/4 in x 1 3/4 in (16 cm x 13.5 cm x 4 cm). The miniature alone is 3 1/2 in x 2 3/4 in (8.5 cm x 6.5 cm)
