Impt. 18th C. Portraits Louis XVI & Queen
Important because they are life carvings, portraits of the period of their later reign, and not as later momentos or historical remembrances. Of fine white natural tusk material, not particularly flattering, late in their ill fated reign, likely carved around 1790. Excellent condition, gilded wood frames, some info on back of one. The actual carvings are bold relief, 2.5" and 2.75".
