English or Continental, c. 1670-80.
An extremely rare and charming 17th c. quillwork or rolled paper diorama featuring two portrait miniatures centered by a castle, and two baskets of flowers. No doubt intended to celebrate an aristocratic marriage, the work reputedly features Mary of Modena and James II.
In excellent color and condition; in later frame.
Painted and gilded rolled paper, watercolor portraits, on silk background.
