Dora Hitz (1856-1924) "Presentation box with large miniature on ivory", Royal Property, 1876/80 1750 EUR
Dora Hitz (1856-1924) "Presentation box with large miniature on ivory", Royal Property, 1876/80
This leather-embossed, wooden presentation box houses a large miniature on ivory that depicts a young aristocratic (royalty?) lady with her little red-haired child. According to this work's previous owner, whose family owned it for two generations, this portrait was formerly in property of the Royal House of Romania. The miniature is signed "D.Hitz" and is a work of well-known German female artist Dora Hitz (1856-1924; for her biography, CLICK HERE), who was from 1876 to 1880 a court portraitist of Elisabeth zu Wied (1843-1916), Queen Consort of Romania.
We are very grateful to our friend, world-best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland) for his generous help.
