Courtesans and Favorites of the Court of Louis XV
Portrait of Anne "Ninon" de l'Enclos also spelled Ninon de Lenclos and Ninon de Lanclos (10 November 1620 – 17 October 1705) was a French author, courtesan, freethinker, and patron of the arts. Much is written about this historic figure and she's a beautiful and interesting figure, indeed. She left her estate to a 9-year old son of her accountant so he could buy books. This 9-year old, later to be known as Voltaire. Such history - her story!
Very good to excellent condition throughout. Has been a cabinet display plate and has no marks nor chips nor cracks or hairlines to diminish the value or appeal. Likely a late 1700s to earliest 1800s plate, it is 8.75" in diameter and 1" in depth.
We have a 2nd plate from same collection, Duchesse de Chateauroux, sold separately. Look for it in our shop.
