Ref  SA2   Madame Royale

Fine quality en grisaille portrait miniature ring, circa 1800, of Madame Royale, Marie-Thérèse-Charlotte (1778-1851), Duchesse d'Angoulême and Dauphine of France. Born at Versailles, Madame Royale was the eldest child of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. She spent her childhood at court and was one of the few royal children to survive the French Revolution. Initially sentenced to death by the revolutionaries, her sentence was commuted to permanent exile. She became Dauphine de France in 1824 and remained devoted to the monarchy for the rest of her life. This gold ring contains a portrait of the young Madame Royale in profile, with details overpainted in white to create the effect of sculpture, under crystal. The ring is size L [US 5 and 1/2] and the head of the ring measures 1 and 1/8 inches by 3/4 of an inch. Immaculate condition.
