Boucheron Antique Miniature Oil Painting Set in a Silver Desk Frame Paris c 1870
Frederic Boucheron small ornate frame holding a fine miniature oil painting.
Beauty like opportunity is where you find it. Here is a "minor miracle" done in the form of a petite oil painting arranged by the great Frederic Boucheron, the founder of his namesake company. Doubtlessly involving one of his prominent customers in a hand made miniature and exquisite vermeil frame with the easel stand in back of the picture consisting of monogram (of the client) portrayed cunningly in a vegetative motif.
What formality, artistry and precious materials have been lavished on this petite "amuse des oeux". What planning had to be expended to surprise wonderfully this special client.
This marvel is 2 1/4th inches high and 2 1/8th inches wide. The piece is signed on the verso by F (ic) Boucheron, Paris, and by Artique on the oil painting. Though small in stature like all successful precious works, this piece has an inimitable monumentality. This small "objets" in such fine condition is quite rare. The verso shows slight tarnish to the gold wash.
