18th century libertine box with double bottom

The 18th century passes for the century of libertinism. It is a luxury which only the nobility enjoys and which appears in the arts and in literature.
Freedom to think and act, breaking social and moral rules, contributing in their own way to the movement of enlightenment.

Painted on ivory, this portrait of a young lady at her toilet, in a low-cut dress, her headdress held up by a monkey (imaginary of an erotic monkey), adorns the lid of this box in blond tortoiseshell highlighted with enamelled gold braid.

A double bottom allows you to discover another miniature representing
a young abbot visiting a young woman with exposed breasts.
