Gold, Enamel, Tortoiseshell and Lacquer Box, Louis XV Period

Circular box in several shades of gold, enamel, and composite materials. The box features varnish or tortoiseshell powder inlaid with thin bands of pink gold. A yellow gold mounting embellished with an interlaced motif frames the box and a central, oval medallion. This enamel medallion features a couple dressed in clothing from ancient Rome standing in front of an altar topped with a statue of Venus who is holding a heart. The young man is placing a crown of roses on the young woman. At the base of the altar a pair of doves is kissing near a bouquet of flowers. The symbols used in this composition show the sentimental nature of the box. The interior of the box is lined entirely with tortoiseshell.
