A stunning Louis XVI religious painted icon upon an embroidered needlework silk ground perfect for your 18th century reliquary collection. Housed under glass and set within its original 18th century gilt composition frame. This devotional gouache on paper, possibly vellum depicts Saint Jerome at study with a Lion in the background from whose paw, according to legend, he once drew a thorn. The flattened metal coiled border that surrounds the miniature is particularly decorative. The fine silk embroidered roses and carnations that flank the central painting are superb and typical of needlework studies from this period. Complete with original wavy glass and original unopened backing paper. Direct from France, this rare sized combination is tres magnifique and very rare indeed. Please note that the other devotional items shown in the final image are available individually in our shop.

Size: Frame width 4.5 inch (11.5 cm) by height 6.75 inch (17 cm). Frame depth 0.25 inch (1.5 cm). Aperture width 3.5 inch (9 cm) by height 4.25 inch (11 cm).

Condition: The silk ground is a little darkened near the top with age. The gilt composition frame has a very, very old historical chip to the base. The top anthemion leaf design has a hole through it where it has been drilled to be hung, we would not recommend using this poorly placed hole to display this 18th century treasure, we would recommend a display Stand. There is also an old stable crack under this anthemion and a few equally ancient stable cracks around the frame to be expected with its vast age.
