This round tortoiseshell box is decorated on the lid with a miniature on ivory, circled in gold. It represents a young woman whose clothes and hairstyle allow us to date the object to the last decade of the 18th century. It is signed on the left Guérin, There are several artists bearing this name and listed as miniature painter, it seems likely, given their period of production, that it is Christophe or Jean Urbain, but in the absence of initial accompanying the name we can not attribute it to one rather than the other.
There are two or three small chips on the edge of the box and the glass is a little altered.
Diameter 8 cm, height 2,4 cm.
