Enamel Miniature Portrait of St Fabiola of Rome in Mahogany Frame (Code 2186)

  • £8500


A delightful miniature enamel portrait of Saint Fabiola set in a mahogany frame.  The portrait is perhaps on copper and may have originally been a brooch, but now in a framed setting.  The portrait is an interpretation of Henner's 19th century version, but using a different colour for the head scarf.  Saint Fabiola was a Roman 4th century noble lady who in later life dedicated herself as a nurse physician and is the patron saint for divorcees, and other troubled relationship issues.  It is a good quality piece, and the frame is also very nicely made.  The enamel work is likely early 20th century and the frame perhaps mid century.


Minor period wear only, a very good example.
