A Tortoiseshell, gold snuff box signed Louis-Nicolas VAN BLARENBERGHE (1716-1794)

Box or snuffbox in tortoiseshell, golden cage mount. Hinged lid decorated with a miniature on vellum with a port scene. On the right, some men and women are seated at the foot of a colonnaded palace, seated, drinking and smoking. In front of them, musicians play and one of them activates at the foot of the puppets. At their foot, a little girl plays with a dog. In the background, the boating port is described with all its excitement. In front of the mansion, women with their servants watch the scene. The owners appear through the windows of their palace.
The miniature is signed lower right: "VAN BLARENBERGHE A LILLE". The miniature seems to have been produced in the middle of the 18th century.
