A remarkable highly attractive Oval Brass Locket, measuring 2-3/8” x 2” containing a black oval period Print Portrait on White Silk of Marquis de Lafayette which was trimmed to fit the oval glass face. The reverse has a wonderful colorful Hand-Painted Portrait of a lady in a colorful white gown and blue cloak, holding a basket of flowers, identified as “Adrienne,” the Marquis’ Wife who had died in 1807. Adrienne’s Portrait is beautifully framed within a black and white oval on the opposite side. A small hanger is attached at the top for suspension. The early glass face is hinged, still working perfectly being nice and tight. There is some exterior fading from wear of the original gold-gilt on the brass oval surround from years of handling. Overall, this Marquis de Lafayette and his Wife Adrienne Memorial Locket is excellent “museum” quality condition. Exceedingly rare if not absolutely unique. A fabulous addition to any Marquis de Lafayette collection.
