Handmade, decoupage-under-glass plates. Original collage-image created from unique image sources including historic, vintage, and original artworks.
The central motif of the Marie Antoinette Grey Series is the famous portrait of her at age 13, painted by Swedish-Austrian painter, Martin Van Meytens in 1767. The portrait was sent to the Dauphin of France so that he could see his soon-to-be-bride. Other visual elements in the Grey Series include a vintage auction house pearl and gold brooch, a large opal, period diamond drop earrings and vintage Botanical images of flamingos and red roses, all on a background ground of grey moiré silk.
These handmade decoupaged glass plates are 4.5 X 6.5 inches and can be displayed as a single, in a pair or threesome. You can also use them as an elegant, sexy “vide poche” to catch your earrings by the bedside. A very romantic gift.
