Large Miniature Portrait On Ivory

Magnificent miniature portrait on ivory plaque representing Queen Sophie-Charlotte of Prussia from the Restoration period.
The queen is represented as a young girl, probably during her stay in Versailles at the court of the Sun King.
The portrait is exceptionally refined, the young girl's face seems like porcelain, illuminated by beautiful blue eyes. It has its original Louis XVI style frame, in finely chiseled and gilded bronze. The gilding is original in excellent condition.
Her name “Sophie-Charlotte Konigin von Hannover” is written inside.

Sophie Charlotte was the first queen of Prussia. He made a trip to France with his mother Sophie in 1679, apparently to pursue his interest in garden design. The main interest of the trip, however, was the possible prospect of a marriage of Sophie Charlotte to the Grand Dauphin, son of the French King Louis XIV, which Sophie was trying to arrange with the help of her niece and former adopted daughter Liselotte von der Palatinate, the king's sister-in-law. However, this goal failed due to the dynastic plans of Louis XIV, who chose a Catholic candidate in the Bavarian electoral chamber.
In 1684 she married Elector Frederick of Brandenburg, known from 1688 as Elector Frederick III, from whose marriage the future King Frederick William I was born.Having died very young, the king wanted to rename their castle Lietzenburg Charlottenburg in honor of his late wife.
