The duchess wears a red silk masquerade gown with a mother-of-pearl overskirt decorated with branch motifs and fur edging, under a red-and-gold coat that matches her whimsical headdress. Holding a black mask in her right hand, she stands in a gallery through which we see the sky and some trees that create a vanishing point while simultaneously allowing the artist to include some elements of offici

Boat-shaped jasper tazza
Gold, Jasper agatatized. 1600 - 1630

The vessel, carved in a single piece, consists of a jasper tazza with an oval mouth and boat-shaped profile. Until 1918 it had a simple mount of handles in the form of dolphins joined by openwork half moons. All that remains of it is a ring on the base, which cannot be seen when the tazza is in its normal position. This missing mount, whose appearance and volumes are known to us only through histo

An ovate vessel in the form of an urn. It has a smooth pyriform body with a double moulding on the shoulder, a neck with a concave profile, and a round mouth. The moulded cover has the form of a cupola, while the short bell-shaped stem ends in a round foot with the same diameter as the mouth. The stone, cracked since ancient times, is held by a mount of pierced and chased gold forming a net, with

This fabulous animal is made of three pieces of rock crystal. The top piece is a horned head with monstrous features resting on a long arched neck similar to that of a swan. It is set into a pear-shaped body with a cuirass-like front worked with scrolls and rows imitating precious stones. It also has short wings emerging from spirals and similar to those of bats. Its flexed and webbed feet are cut

Vessel made up of two pieces of chalcedony and an enamelled gold mount. The body is formed by a deep hemispherical base and a smaller lid of the same shape surmounted by a delicate pyramidal openwork structure of pointed leaves, pavilions, fruits and rows of beads. Inserted in this are three cameos and numerous children’s heads with enamel wings. The stem, also openwork, displays three large cameo

This vessel had a pair, now lost (I1416), which must have been very similar and by the same hand as O37, the work of the silversmith Pierre Ladoyreau or Ladoireau, who made part of the silver furnishings at Versailles. It comprises two pieces of red jasper and two large mounts with twenty cameos. The body is in the form of a bowl with a diminished arch profile, a round mouth, and a lobulated ring

The pair of a vessel stolen in 1918, this is one of the few pieces which still preserve work by Pierre Ladoyreau or Ladoireau, one of the great master craftsmen of the 17th century in France, who designed furnishing and bronzes for the palace and gardens of Versailles. It is made up of two pieces of stone, sixteen cameos and three large enamelled gold mounts. The decoration of the mounts, similar

Described in the 1689 inventory of the Dauphin’s Cabinet as a vase “in the antique style”, this is an example of the prevailing fashion in the 1680s. The decoration of enamelled leaves in the adornments combines floral motifs covered in enamelling of the same metallic colour with a variety of stones, an aesthetic solution deriving from collections of engravings. The use of cameos serves to lend th

According to Laurent’s photographs, the vessel, a high cup made in about 1530-40, consisted of four pieces and four enamelled gold mounts, of which two remain. On the cover, among leaves, spirals and masks, there were three statuettes in white enamel of semi-nude women raising their left arms. Above, a half-length satyr with a Baroque (i.e. irregular) pearl on his breast held the women’s arms with

The coffer is a key item in any study of French silverware and European collecting. Initially part of Cardinal Mazarin’s collection, on his death it was sold at auction, subsequently being acquired by the Grand Dauphin. The gold crafting links this piece to a group of works associated with the so-called Maestro of Dragons, Pierre Delabarre, a Parisian silversmith who qualified as a master craftsma

A vessel comprising three pieces of rock crystal. The body takes the form of an ancient urn of circular cross-section with two winged female busts, sculpted from the body itself, emerging by way of handles from a concave neck. It sits on a fluted base that, like the lid, has recently been identified. A complex scene occupying the central section of the body reflects a tableau typical of Milanese p

Vessel made up of three pieces of hardstone and five enamelled gold mounts. The body, with an oval mouth and irregular semicircular profile, undulates across six broad gadroons. So too does the cover, rather smaller and almost flat, surmounted by a turned motif terminating in an acorn. The mount joining the two pieces is formed by a broad band pierced with vegetable spirals and cruciform motifs en

Cup, possibly a saltcellar, comprising a gold-enamelled sculpture, studded with rubies and diamonds, and two pieces of agate. The figure is a double-tailed mermaid, with a natural-coloured gold torso and a greenish-blue, red and translucent green enamelled tail.

This piece, which belongs to a set of two ewers with basins (O24 to O27), is a jug with a bell-shaped body and deep, hemispherical base, from which a spout with a sloping upper plane emerges. The mount takes the form of a grille, replacing the usual ribs of the lower part with pearl-laden leaves, a moulding in the lower third and uneven vertical strips bearing an S-shaped handle, with a mascaron,

The vessel is a flask in the form of an antique urn made up of three pieces of agate and two gold mounts with diamonds and rubies. The handles, two monolithic volutes, emerge from two bearded masks, possibly representations of Silenus, and come to rest near the lip of the vessel. The lid has a lion’s head with a gold and ruby incrustation between its jaws. The round foot, possibly later, is joined
