Silver medallion, weighing in total 45,4g, adorned with (set atop the crown) a faceted, white-colored stone (diamond?).
The medallion houses a miniature portrait of ca. 4-5 year-old Henri d'Artois, duc de Bordeaux (1820-1883), posthumous son of (killed in 1820) Duke de Berry (see also our web # 36433 and # 36434).
This miniature demonstrates strong resemblance to works of well-known 19th-century French miniaturist Francois Meuret (CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION) and could with great likelihood by his original creation.
Francois Meuret was born in 1800 in Nantes and died in 1887 in Beaumont-le-Roger (Eure). He studied in Paris under Aubry; exhibited at the Salon from 1822 to 1852, and, in 1827, received a second class medal. In 1864 he was appointed Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur.
Meuret, who was miniature painter to Louis Philippe and the Orleans family, was one of the best artists of his period. He painted most of the personages of the court, chiefly from life, sometimes pictures by Winterhalter and others. In the beginning, he was strongly influenced by Isabey, later his technique becomes softer and his palette more highly coloured.
