Charles BOURGEOIS (1759 -1832) - Lady in profile, miniature portait with hebrew name

Charles Guillaume Alexandre BOURGEOIS (Amiens, 1759 - Paris, 1832).
End of 18th Century lady in profil, miniature on ivory, on a woodbox lined with ivory, interior lined with tortoiseshell, diam. 8 cm
Typical of the fine portraits in profile on dark blue background made by Charles Bourgeois (several examples at The Louvre miseum and in most of the large collections of miniatures).
This one is presenting an extremely rare inscription in hebrew, lower right and left:
"Avraham Shavan" or Sevan or other combinaison with the lettres S or Ch, V, N.
Firstname and name are written twice, in cursive and in capital letters. This is possibly the name of the recipient of the miniature.

We are thankful to Naftaly Fraenckel, expert in judaïca, for his help to decifer the inscriptions.
