This French or Swiss, round, gold mounted, lacquer snuff-box, executed in mid-1790s contains in its lid an oval painted miniature portrait of a lady with a large coiffure with ribbons and roses who also bears rich gold jewellery.
The miniature is monogrammed and dated at the lower right hand corner - "h.D./1793" which means it is one more work in our possession of well-known, turn of 19th century French miniaturist Francois-Hippolyte Desbuissons.
Interior with painted straw work of flowers. Strick twice to the lid edge with later French "owl" control mark of 1890s.

François Hippolyte Desbuissons, called Hipolite, was born ca. 1740 and died after 1822. He studied in 1758-1765 at the Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture in Paris under Joseph Marie Vien. The artist spent several years in Rouen, where he was probably befriended with Jean-Baptiste Descamps the Elder. In 1786 Hipolite is mentioned as a member of the Academie de St-Luc. In 1978, Hipolite's biographer Bedouret compiled a list of his complete works, with only 23 (!) miniatures that were doubtlessly attributed to the artist (Bedouret has not seen our miniature! - B.W.). In this list, among the works from the period between 1778 and 1822 are those monogrammed with "hD" (sic!) and "hipolite" written in italics.
