Cigar Case

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Raised over a stippled gilded ground in plique-à-jour enamel, there are two peacocks resting on a bough surrounded by blossoms and leaves. The birds are dark and light blue and orange whereas the blossoms are red and blue and the foliage is green. Overhead is a dragon fly. On the reverse of the case, the colors are identical, but peahens rather than peacocks are represented. Bordering the case's edges is an inner row of turquoise circles followed by outer rows of blue and white lozenge shapes.
Provenance Leo Kaplan Ltd, New York; Jean M. Riddell, Washington, D.C., April 17, 1982, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 2010, by bequest.
