Fine Antique Silver Gilt & Hand Painted Enamel Compact HC Freeman Hatton Garden (Code 1941)
The front is hand painted in a rural barn scene with characters and animals, it is painted in the Dutch Golden Age style, and the composition looks to have been inspired by George Morland (himself greatly influenced by the Dutch). Note the amazing detail for the small size down to the rope hanging from the roof joist and the sow and piglets to the lower left. This detail is also painted over engine turning which you can just see through parts of the enamel. An especially fine example for the collector, or a wonderful gift for someone special.
Very good order, slight wear only.
