19th C. Miniature Enamel On Copper Louis XVII After Kucharsky

This stunning late 19th century miniature enamel on copper depicts Louis XVII son of Louis XVI after the original oil painting done by Alexander Kucharsky. The Dauphin of France was a tragic figure and an innocent pawn in the disastrous events that led to the execution of his mother and father. Here we see him as a lovely young child with his future seemingly stretched happily in front of him.

The miniature was probably sold from an exclusive Paris shop as a Grand Tour souvenir in the latter part of the 19th to early 20th century. It is housed in a gold leaf molded frame, which is in excellent condition, unfortunately there is wear to the enamel around the face on both cheeks and to the chin area with copper showing through. The reverse has a written provenance by a former owner, which we have left intact.

Size of Frame: 5" Height by 4" Width

Size of Image: 3 5/8" Height by 2 3/8" Width.
