ROYAL PROVENANCE, Rare chiseled gilt-bronze bollard clock

Royal Provenance Gallery is now located in front of the Opéra Garnier, since April 2019, in an apartment-showroom on the 4th floor. This move marked a decisive turning point in the development of our gallery, previously located in the 8th arrondissement at 45 rue de Penthièvre. Since the beginning of 2019, the Gallery has expanded, both in terms of space and partners. The gallery’s director, Maxime Charron, has teamed up with one of his close collectors and has taken over a more prestigious and vast exhibition space. This new upstairs space offers our customers and collectors more privacy while being an exhibition space filled with history and elegance.

The aim of our gallery is to offer to collectors and museums worldwide, rare and interesting works of art and furniture provided with a royal or imperial provenance, if possible, or with any other provenance that we could have found. Our passion and our taste for unique and beautiful works of art are linked to the natural quality of items with such a provenance.

We are particularly specialized in Sèvres porcelain, notably from the 19th century, but we also buy and sell other types of works of art, like silver, objects of Vertu or gilt-bronze, and also French furniture of high quality and of course portraits painted. Our experience in the art field and our knowledge of the international art market allow us to propose to our clients a range of choice widened by more than three hundred pieces which are renewed every year.

After several participations in national art fairs such as the Salon de l’Objet d’Art at the Grand Palais and the Parcours de la Céramique rive gauche, the Royal Provenance gallery is proud to participate this year to an international art fair like Fine Arts where we will exhibit a selection of twenty prestigious pieces, some of which have never been seen on the market.

Portrait of Empress Eugénie.
Circa 1853.

Rare cameo engraved on shell called “camée coquille”, with several layers, showing the left profile of the Empress inspired by the models of Nieuwerkerke and Peyre. The difference is that Eugenie wears here a pearl set including a one-row pearl necklace with nine pear pearls (that of the Duchess of Angoulême from the Crown Jewels, ill. 1. We will also note the resemblance to that of the Duchess of Sutherland (ill. 2) which would have belonged to Queen Marie-Antoinette), two pear-shaped pearl earrings (personal purchase), and in the hair a long pearl necklace.

D. 6,2 cm (au total). Poids brut : 36,6 g.

Mounted in a gold round brooch (18k) decorated with filigrees and beaded border in the neo-Greek or “neo-archaeological” taste.
