A very beautifully worked Diorama or Collage of Flowers in a Basket which was made in France probably as a 'reliquary' or as a wedding present. between 1820-1860. Mounted on an oval shaped canvas covered stretcher, real dried leaves and flowers are intricately worked in with wicker basketwork , and then originally stabilized with lacquer. The diorama might originally have been set into a picture frame behind glass, but makes a very beautiful if delicate wall hanging display as is.

Measures 21 inches tall x 18 wide . In good stable condition.
