Petite Diorama

Bourgeois interior (25cm x 16cm), depicting a family in their drawing room entertaining themselves with a game of cards dating from the late 19th Century. Fine attention to detail including an 'ormolu' clock and glass chandeliers. Clothing includes micro cord tailoring on the gentleman's suit and a fabulous pleated skirt on the mother's dress. The faces are actual photographs, making this a highly unusual family portrait.
