NAVETTE SHAPED ORMOLU BOX WITH HAND PAINTED MINIATURE PORTRAIT OF NAPOLEON BONAPARTE

This listing is for a stunning ormolu navette shaped French casket. It is inset with a hand painted miniature portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte on ivory, set behind original bevelled edge glass. The ormolu is in great condition, the top has applied mounts on either side of the portrait. The exterior surround of the box has Greek urns, Cornucopia and flowing and trailing vines. I believe this is a portrait after the French artist "David". Not only is the casket superb but the painting is of great quality, there is a signature bottom right but not legible. The interior is lined in a wine coloured velvet. The size of the miniature is 35mm in Dia. The casket sizes are shown below
