The Limoges enamel plaques in this pair are superb examples of the type, each plaque being unusually large in form. The plaques portray typically 18th Century subject matter, executed in a distinctively 18th Century manner. One plaque depicts a pair of ladies in a splendid garden, the duo closely examining a marble statue of two women in a lover’s embrace; while the pair look upon the marble, a well-dressed male stands behind, a slight smirk on his face. The second plaque presents a musical party, or fête galante: a cellist and violinist play for two young ladies, the entire scene unfolding on a beautiful colonnaded terrace. Both plaques are painted in the Rococo manner, with delicate brushstrokes and a pastel palette employed by the artist.
The plaques are indistinctly signed, and one is dated ‘1904’. Each plaque is contained by an ornate giltwood frame.
