Footnotes

  • The present lot is a copy of the slightly smaller, circular enamel that Pierce Bone created for Queen Victoria in 1843 (Royal Collection, RCIN 421709). A pencil annotation by the miniature's entry in the Enamels inventory, states that the identification of the sitter is incorrect (see, V. Remington, Victorian Miniatures in the Collection of Her Majesty The Queen, 2010, vol. I, p.88, no.131). The identification was based on some prose to the reverse of the original oil portrait at Althorp, formerly attributed to Bernard van Orley (c. 1488-1541/2) and since re-attributed to the Flemish School. Another enamel version by Pierce Bone resides at Madresfield Court in Worcestershire (Remington, p.89).
