Vernis Martin and Gold Box with Miniatures

Circular box in burnt orange vernis Martin, set in two-toned gold. The box features four gouache on paper miniatures featuring portraits of the family of Joseph-Bernard Chabert, Marquis de Cogolin (1724-1805).

He later immigrated to England and returned to Paris shortly before his death.
The underside of the box features a portrait of a distinguished, elderly woman. The interior of the box is lined with tortoiseshell and contains two other portraits: a young woman from the late 18th century, as well as a cardinal.
