Viennese Austrian enamel hand painted miniature carriage with ormolu mounts.
This delightful miniature is modeled after a Brougham carriage and is decorated with fine Viennese enamelwork. Romantic paintings of both a pastoral scene depicting a French couple and of floating cherubs carrying garlands of roses adorn the enamel panels. The wheeled chassis and window frames are made of detailed ormolu with "Austria" engraved on the footboard.
Charming novelty items such as this Viennese enamel carriage were at their height of fashion during the late 19th and early 20th century. The carriage is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or restorations. There are a few small stress marks in the enamel when viewed under magnification with a loupe. These include three tiny hairlines visible only under very close inspection. They are extremely small and are not visible in our photographs. This is considered exceptionally good condition for a Viennese Austrian enameled carriage.
